Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
That's an odd gear lever for a type 5
Its from a scimitar - they did that
Its not a Capri box and wrong box for Zodiac, Zepher and Scimitar as they were side lever , that only leaves the Transit , Capri was cable clutch ,has to be transit with that lever
Se5a were Zodiac boxes with the side seiector Se6a was the Granada box with the cranked lever as you see in the pic.
Transit V6 was cable or rod depending on year - so the BH can only be Zodiac/Scimitar
Zodiak mk4 had the hydro BH
Transit lever, so if its a Transit box, its got sh*t ratio's.
Probably an Ambulance
Transit gear lever comes out of the side with what always looked like an adapter or straight out of the top of the main gearcase. Thats a Granada gearbox as it looks like a 'big' 2000e box.
Its all from a scimitar just like what the add says
BRSCC ambulance / emergency tender at Brands Hatch back in the late 70's was a MK1 long petrol that was capable of very respectable lap times. 90% sure it was essex powered.
Just spent an hour trawling google as I was sure I had seen a photo... oh well.
As Daryl says think it was long nosed ambulances which became rally support guys. That gearlever is for the third seat, sat with that between my legs for a few miles :-((
