Coupe, SE5, SE5a Roof Aerials

Post by windy » Tue Nov 06, 2012 7:49 pm

Been looking for a couple of months for one of these. It seems the only supplier is Durite (part number 0-653-00) & they have no stock in the UK & no restocking date. I can confirm it is the same as fitted to Rover P6 series cars. There was a thread on this a while ago but thought best to put a part re-manufacture request up, the situation being as it is.

A quick Google suggests that Gordon Equipments Ltd (who manufacture parts under the Durite name) are more of a supplier than manufacturer today?

I wonder who actually makes the aerial?

I would have one for 8Ball if we can find out - any more interest?
