Tear shaped boot lock??


Hi everybody,


Does anyone out there know of which car the tear shaped boot lock comes from?


I don't have one with my car, and i saw this lock on Stuart's and Peter's Phase 1.


It's also on a picture in a 1958 magazine article, so this should be the right one for my car.


Anyone??


Thanks.

Hi Nigel,


Thanks for the website adress, indeed they have many different locks.


But i did a bit of searching and found that this lock is also used on the Jensen CV8, as a bonnet lock.


Maybe a small contribution to the "wotsitoff" page?


They are probably also used on other cars, but i don't know which.


In the meantime i found and won one NOS lock with keys on Ebay.


Regards,


Erik

Looks like it's also off the P1800. Fuel filler cap lock. See B664575 (WBH key, I notice)

Can anyone confirm?

All the best, Gary

Yes the lock on the boot of my Peerless looks similar to the locks I removed from my Lotus Europa S2.  You can find a pair here on RDent's site.  Select Europa parts and scroll down a bit.  rdent.com.

Thanks Dean, yes RDent's looks identical, too. Albeit a tad more expensive?

At least they're easy to source!

I have new door handles (locks on both sides, though no barrels yet), now I'm sourcing the boot handle and hoping I can get matching FS barrels for all three so they use one key.

Still not decided on fuel caps. I want locking caps but with the low profile of the originals. Or find a method of inserting a lock beneath the original style cap Uncle Frank is a devil once the whiskey is gonebiggrin

I, 've got a tear shaped lock on the boot of my ph 1 which I will sell for a small sum of 20k and I'll through the car in with it . I also use the same key for both doors , ign . And boot , so I recon I'll still be able to pick Gary's locking petrol caps when my wisky runs out .
