November Mystery Converter Identified!



December 2009 Update:

The converter would have been seen in the USA in the 1300cc Austin America. The transmission was a four speed unit that had a common oil source with the engine. Engine sizes ranged from 850ccc through to the 1275cc.

In the 1970s, the converter would have been referred to as a British Leyland Mini, or Austin Mini.

Congratulations to both Peter Cifuentes of the Converter Man, Ltd., and Mark Burrell of JP Automatic Transmission, Ltd, for correctly identifying last month’s mystery converter.
