Assuming you are talking about the steel circular one with twin pipes ? Its supposed to have come from a Vauxhall cresta pb, 3.3L, which some say was only an export model ? Early 1960's. jc

- it was also fitted to the Ford Zodiac, I believe..... Not the easiest to find in your local scrapyard....

It was made by AC Delco if that helps..and a number of specialists (in the UK such as Paul Matty) still sell them.

Many thanks for all your replies. I did not have the original within the car when purchased so I'm on the hunt to find one.

I have a spare one at the back of my garage. Needs some paint but otherwise in good condition. Free to a good home, if you missed the ebay lot.

BTW: I am in the UK.
