Very Happy Very Happy I had a Vogue, a few years back, and used Morris Minor 2 door rear 1/4 rubbers, cut down to suit Vogue..

You have no chance of finding the either nos or remanufactured.
Best bet is to look for a scrapper and see if they are any good.

The fronts are available on Eblag (from a guy in Australia). Not a perfect fit but good enough if you let them settle in and keep manipulating them.
Not cheap at over 100 pair though.

Try C O H Baines. Look them up on t'internet. They make many profiled rubbers and may be able to offer something that will fit or make something to pattern.

Thank you all very much for your replies. Managed to find one being scrapped and waiting for delivery. Not the easiest things in the world to find!!

Around ten years ago, when I asked them to make several hundred quarterlight rubbers to a pattern they asked for 2,000 set up costs. They also said they'd be made in India.
