Austin Centric parts and some Bantam hood sides

After a bunch of parts ended on ebay last night, for astronomical prices to boot.  As those were ending, another set of items were listed by the seller.

First up:  An American Austin Tillotson M10A carb.  Unlike the one which sold for nearly $500, this is the earlier more common carb.  The seller states that it is not split or broken.  However, in the first photo it looks as though one of the bosses that holds a stop for the throat side lever is broken.  You may want to ask for more photos.

If you’re looking for a core steering wheel, here is one which is cracked and missing much of its ribbing.  These are no longer remanufactured, so it may be difficult to find someone to repair the original rubber compound of the wheel.

American Austin Coupe mirror:  If you need one for your Austin Roadster, this may be modified as the original ones were to delete the top scallop and bolt hole.

I’m not sure how many of these have gone missing over the years, but this looks to be the cowl vent for an Austin coupe or a Bantam Coupe, Convertible Sedan, or Convertible Coupe.

Lastly, the seller has a pair of Bantam hood sides.  They have no holes punched for either the Bantam emblems installed on 1940 Bantams or the garnish used on the 1939 Deluxe model Bantams.  The seller supposedly has a $150 reserve on them, it’ll be interesting to see what this command.
