Wire Wheel Conversion

In 1999 I decided to convert the 1500 drum brake car to wire wheels.  All the parts were sourced from Bob West (www.bobwestclassiccars.co.uk) and comprised the following:

  Items Description Part Number

In addition new bearings may be required, depending on the condition of those removed from the old front hubs.

This modification leaves the drum brakes in place.  To upgrade this conversion to front discs see the following page:
