SimonAnother reference document that helps answer questions such as which models of the Austin Healey used an ash tray would be the Concours Guidelines available from several sources. A quick look at the score sheets for each model will show which ones had a point deduction for a missing an ash tray. While not perfect the guidelines are very reliable.Perry

Fibre glass, centre change box.Some of you pointed out peculiarities concerning the ash tray fitting. I’ll be getting a new tunnel cover carpet and, as these seem to be more or less bespoke, I’m wondering whether to keep the ash tray or fibre glass over the square hole.Did all original tunnel covers come with a hole fitted for ash trays? And thus some had the ash tray actually fitted and some had the hole carpeted over?Or what?Was the ash tray an optional extra which, in fact, was fitted to most cars. Like wire wheels…..Nobody will ever smoke in my car. I just use the ash tray for spare fuses, valve caps and the like….I’ll have to let the carpet people know one way or the other.Simon
