Post by djnippa » Fri Mar 14, 2014 6:24 pm

Here is my list of parts specialists for Rootes vehicles:-

Greenwood Auto UK / AVP Automotive
Middlesex
020 3417 0432
http://stores.ebay.co.uk/GreenwoodAutoU ... nkw=Humber
http://www.avpauto.co.uk/

Ebay shop. Select parts available, but the best and cheapest price around. They slaughter everyone price wise by as much as 60% on some items.
All parts are either original, German or Iranian (manufactured for the popular Hillman Arrow and Khodro Paykan - which are still driven by many people), so the parts are good.

__________________________________________________________________________________

Sunbeam-Alpine
West Midlands
(0)1527 401498
or TEXT SUE on 07767 604091
http://www.sunbeam-alpine.co.uk/

They have an extensive range, including panels for MK1, Mk2's.
Very difficult to get hold of, and often deal with them using text messages to Sue.
On a number of occasions the wrong parts have been delivered, and they take a few extra days to deliver.
Can also be very expensive, but they have many items that the others do not have.

FW Thornton
Telford Shropshire
+44 (0)1952 252892
http://www.fwthornton.co.uk/

The best place for Pistons, and good for all other original engine parts. Parts are the most expensive, but they are all original.
Great service, and very knowledgable on all Rootes cars.

It was without doubt the best upgrade I did to my MK2 last year. Quicker, smoother, no rev drop on depression and longer lasting. It is the best quality you can buy in the world. It has none of the problems you may have heard about some 'foreign made' roller bearings.

Thanks great list, I've used a lot of these. Sunbeam Alpine have been the worst, still waiting for a panel item from last December. Going to give up soon.

Can someone put this thread as a sticky. That way anyone looking for parts who isn't sure where to go has a good starting point without having to hunt through the forum for information

Hi Guys,
I cannot praise Speedy Spares highly enough. I use them regularly for bits for my Sceptre Mk1. They certainly live up to their name! But for second hand parts I would also recommend giving BALBY MOTOR SPARES in Doncaster a try. Last year my steering box fell in bits, and I tried them. They had one off a car which was in excellent condition and has proved to be spot-on. Quite reasonable too. Their number is 01302 858805.
Hope this helps,

Cheers,

Bryan Ellis, Huddersfield.
