Hi! I'm an MGB owner, and frequent the MG forum, but a friend of mine is looking for a Sunbeam part, so here I am. If anyone has a lead on where he might find the parts he's looking for, please send him an email. Thanks!

WANTED: A Rootes radio fitting kit [WR-9] for a 1964 Series IV Sunbeam Alpine. Have the radio, need the fittings to install it into the car as original. Photo available of what I'm looking for. Contact: Ralph Gerkhardt, Mountain Vintage Radio, mountainradio@goes.com

Odds are against finding one, they are quite rare for some reason. His best bet might be calling junk yards that advertise breaking Sunbeams or watching for a parts car that has one and the scrapping or selling the remains. Even on the specialized Sunbeam sites, folks can't find them. I've seen asking prices as high as $1000 for a complete setup and one that looked like it had been runover for over $250.
