[Healeys] Bring A Trailer

First cockpit trim piece I've seen with a groove; was this an option, or 
maybe an aftermarket piece (note the groove is apparent in the fourth 
photo on the listing; subsequent photos appear to be different)?  Here's 
my M's trim piece; AFAIK this is original, verified as 'Registry 
Certified' by the M Registry* and, of course, the BMIHT cert. 
Interesting this has a recent (September) BMIHT cert; looks like they've 
changed the wording for 'M' confirmation (my much earlier cert just 
implies this is an M car because of the 'louvred' bonnet). Beautiful car 
to be sure.

I have the same radiator hose clamps; this is the only other car I've 
seen with them; are they correct? I had a long 'conversation' with Rich 
Chrysler over these, but to this day I'm not sure if we were on the same 
page. IIRC, he called them 'Jubilee clamps,' but I think those are the 
screw-on type. One thing's for sure: they will be a royal PITA if I ever 
have to replace the hoses.


* I realize this is not the canonical source, but AFAIK it's the most 
comprehensive database available (unfortunately, probably not as 
reliable as Steve's BJ8 database). Bill requires various 'proof' items 
for 'Registry Certification,' like proper stamped numbers on trim 
pieces, the boot prop, etc. and the hand-scribed notations on the carbs 
and, I think, the distributor (though they may be stamped). Note I'm not 
interested in disputing /anybody's /car's authenticity; my dad and I 
made reasonable efforts to keep our car as original as possible, but I 
insisted on some maintainabilty/drivability mods (K&N air filter, 
Pertronix). I am, slowly, trying to address some of the incorrect things 
(like the LH side windshield post bolt).
