Does anyone have a spare transmission tunnel for a 54 4AD

Can't imagine it would be usable if anyone did have one. AFAIK they were all made from a molded rubber compound which didn't hold up well to sun and oil exposure.

At one time, someone was making reproductions from fiberglass. When I was needing one, I couldn't' find a source so I did a one off in fiberglass in a simpler rectangular design.

Thanks Steve, I suspected as much . I am thinking of using some concrete sonotubes cut to shape to act as a mould for fibreglass.

Guys,

I believe the moulds created by the late Roadster guru Bill Haverly are in the hands of ASCO in the UK. I think they may have made up a batch. These are fiberglass but look like the original at a distance.

Might be worth checking with them via their club site:

Hope that helps!
