Sabres and the MoT

So far we have not declared our Sabres to be of "Historic Interest" at the time of renewing their tax. To be honest I have always forgotten to do so at those times. So we have just renewed the MoT for the Prototype (prior to it moving to new custodianship) and our Sabre Six convertible. The process ...

Wiper switches

Bonding in Metal Brackets

As part of the restoration of our Sabre Six GT I have been fabricating various steel brackets to replace rusted or missing originals. These include the rear wing to rear cross-member bracket and the bonnet hinge. These have to be bonded into the glassfibre bodywork. My question is: will the bonding ...

Wiper switches

The Sabre Six and Sabre Four (and the Sabra) were fitted with the Lucas DR3 wiper motor. This was also original fitment to the Jaguar Mk1, no doubt amongst other cars of the day. I think the rotary switch was also fitted to the Jaguar Mk1. The attached description of operation and wiring diagram, pr...

Coupe Heater valve

Is it the same as a Sabre Six heater valve? If so it's the same as for a Land Rover Series 3 and widely available - see here for example http://www.ebay.co.uk/p/Heater-Water-Va ... 591&chn=ps.

I assume you are talking about the "early" Sabres. Moritz Wüst who is a dealer, www.aqu.ch, in Dällikon, Switzerland had a Sabre Six a couple of years ago.
