    Re: 1967 BJ-8 Kick Panels

    Hi Tod,

    If I remember correctly, you have it exactly correct. I often thought there must have been a reason related to a right hand drive Healey that was the reason for the difference. However,...

    Hi John,

    That is a lot of work you have been doing.

    Hi Bob,

    They were not standard on BJ8 but may have been on earler models. I know this as one who purchased his BJ8 new and purchased the tray some years later.
