Hello, I took the plunge and bought a 66 Minx (called a Sunbeam here, not Hillman) and am searching for a few parts and hope someone might give me a lead. Overall the car is pretty complete, but I need the rubber shift boot on the shifter, this car has the BW auto box. Any idea if this was used on any other cars of that era? None of the limited USA Rootes suppliers seem to have any ideas. Thanks in advance for any lead!

Welcome to the forum Smile

I've not used them, but Speedy Spares seems to come up regularly as a place to try for Rootes parts.
