Photo attached is of chassis 80016. A 1940 SS DHC. It is slightly earlier than my own 1940 saloon 80034.
My questions are
- Are the horns correct being mounted above the front valance? My car has existing holes in the same position but I have no further evidence this is correct for my car. The SPC and Lucas catalogues are very confusing and I cant be sure that either is correct.
- The SPC suggest the '40 SS has the same wiring loom as used again on early post war cars. This is a loom without the flexible steel conduit over various wiring as previously utilised on the '39. Is there anyway of determining, perhaps by holes for route of wiring, that would confirm which is correct? Does the '39 have wiring routed across the car on the engine side of the radiator? as I do have some small holes here.
Very tricky trying to establish when these changes actually occured.
Thanks in advance.
