1936/37 SS Saloons in New Zealand

Can anyone help with any info on 1936/37 SS Saloons in New Zealand. A friend in Perth wants to get a spare wheel cover made for the Left Hand side mounted spare.
Or does anyone have a spare of one of these?

Also does anyone know where[EVW201] was located?

I have two parts of a cover for my '36 2.5 spare wheel; the steel ring that covers the inner sidewall, and the alloy cover that clamps over the tread and part of the outer sidewall. Unrestored condition; not for sale, but could send photos and dimensions if they would be of any use?

Chris,
thanks we are looking at getting one made at upper classics if we can’t find an original for sale

The picture shows a 1 1/2 litre Some aspects will be a little different for a 2 1/2 litre
There would be a lot of parts, work [ and $$ ] involved
Whitehorse Industries made SS1 cover years ago. Not identical but a similar basis for a start.

Terry.
Contact Alan Blundell, co-ordinator of the NZSS and Mk V register.
I’m sure he can put you in touch with an owner there.
Although looking through some of their members cars I can’t find one with the cover.


Alan’s email is “Marie and Alan Blundell” marie.blundell@xtra.co.nz

Which might indicate that if someone tooled up to make them, there’d be a big enough market to spread the tooling costs a bit.

I sure do love the look of those P100 headlights!

Unfortunately, they aren,t correct on 1836 models, originally they were QK596 as on SS100#

My my, Lucas was very advanced:)
