Very rare vintage / period / retro SMITHS 2 inch FASTEN SEAT BELTS GAUGE
Last year I bought a 1970 Mini Clubman from the old boy who had owned it from new. This gauge was fitted in the car when I got it and was in full working order. It was fitted in an overhead console (see the picture). I've taken the car to a few shows since and the FASTEN SEAT BELTS sign is always a talking point. It lights up when the ignition is switched on and you press the silver button on the front to turn it off. Unfortunately I'm over 6' tall and Mini's aren't very big as you know so I got fed up with banging my head on the overhead console had it had to go
These are very rare. I've only ever seen one other on e-bay and that was just a couple of weeks ago. If you search the eBay completed listings for item 320744195142 you'll see that was one whch 'maybe did or maybe didn't work' and it attracted lots of interest and sold for £35.
This would look great in any classic / retro / race car from the 1960's or 1970's including Mini Coopers, Hillman Imp, Ford Escort or Capri or Granada, Opel Manta, BMW 2002, Beetle, Karmann Ghia, Camper, T25, Splitty - any period classic car really!
I'll carefully pack this item and am happy to post it anywhere in the world: UK - £3.00 Worldwide - £8.15
It's now on that internet auction site we all know and love........
