MINOR SERIES II 1953-56
In the main the trim panels on the Series II models were identical to those fitted to the earlier MM cars, but the seat design and construction changed slightly as can be seen here. The carpets although looking very similar were of different design as well. The Traveller series was also introduced at this time and you will see the necessary parts we manufacture for this model alongside the saloon parts. Although the front seats on all Series II vehicles look the same, early seats produced in 1953 did not have the more conventional envelope style squab cover, but a cover that was basically tacked to the seat frame and then a vinyl covered fibreboard backboard which in turn was also tacked onto the frame. The only physical way of checking to see which type of seat you have is to examine the back of the squab near the rear piping. If there is “decorative” stitch line just below this piping on the back panel then this is the early type seat. The base covers are the same for both types. You will note that we have listed headlining kits. These are not for early cars with the plywood type headlining but for later cars with conventional hooped linings. Although we mention the rear 4 door armrest recovering kit, we would suggest you send your old units to us for recovering, as this can be quite tricky.
