Joegingerichjr has posted some more items. Although I haven’t had too many things to bid on, I may have to cast a bid in on the NOS window regulator. I’m not sure how mine are, but it would be great to have one guaranteed to operate properly (and to give me an idea of what is wrong with all of my parts). The last set of parts that sold are all things we have seen before on ebay, so the prices were fairly predictable. Now, we have a wholly different group of items, and my guess as to what they will go for is as good as yours.
If anyone knows more about the pistons, please let me know. They look completely different from any of the Bantam pistons I have seen, and have much thicker walls than I am used to. The only piston I have seen that bears a resemblance to these is a late 50’s replacement I saw with a 3 main engine that blew up, but was never rebuilt. Please note the correct bore sizes for your application.

American Austin/ Bantam Generator support
This mount should work for 1934-1940 Applications, with some 1933’s thrown in for good luck.

American Austin / Bantam Cooling Fan and Pulley
Somehow, these fans and pulleys always seem to get lost. This unit looks as though it will fit an Austin or Bantam with a V-belt and a traditional generator. However, note that there are some differences in the fan blades themselves. I believe one of the variations of the fan blade looked as though it had a doubly thick mounting section.

Austin / Bantam Piston 2
Same thing as the pistons above, they don’t look like the pistons I’ve seen come out of engines. Maybe they are old replacements?

Bantam Outside Door Handles:
This is a nice matched set of original Bantam outside door handles. If you must have a door handle with a lock, you may want to bid as only non-locking handles are available NOS at this time. Another thought is, since there is no key, unless you have a lock smith who can reverse engineer a key the lock will only be for decoration as there is no key. Also, don’t forget, the lock goes on the passenger side. Looking at the photos again, I realize that there may be missing parts from the locking door handle. I have one, which is basically missing the same parts. Does anyone have a photo of a complete unit that I can post for comparison?

Period Correct Horn:
Here’s one that I’m not very sure of. The horn is a Bosch. From my recollection Bantams and Austins did not use a Bosch horn. I believe they are listed as using E.A. Labs, Schwarze, and Motovox horns. You may want to make sure this is right for your car before bidding. However, finding a horn for a Bantam is like finding a needle in a haystack; so if you like this period horn, why not enlist its services to let everyone know you’re coming through.

NOS window regulator:
I’m not sure if there are any differences between the window regulators used in Bantams and Austins. Either way, this is a nicely preserved example, which at the very least will give me some photos to help rebuild mine.

1939-1940 Bantam Hood Sides
These hood sides appear to have no holes punched for either two vertical stripes of trim or Bantam emblems. It is most likely that these are for a commercial truck or a passenger car with lower trim designation. They look nice and straight and can be a bear to find in any condition.
