I have been taking stock of my car, a 54 RHD BN1.  As I have been digging into
the car I have found what is clearly original Healey Blue paint on the
firewall.  This confirms the Heritage information I was given back in the
80's. I also think I have revealed one of the original door cards.  There are
photos of this on my Photobucket site

this look like the original door trim to you? Back in the late 60's/70's one
of the PO's had told me that the gear box was replaced by a 4 speed BN2 box.
THere are some shots of the box on the photobucket site.  Does it look like a
BN2 box to the experts? Thanks for your input.  I have posted the same
question and photos on the British Cars forum, I'll check both places. Thanks
for any input. Simon G.Troy, IL
