He's been trying to flog them for many months now. Perhaps 541 owners should padlock their sills when the car is in a public place...

From item description:
"IF LOOKING AT THIS LISTING, VERY LIKELY YOU REALISE ALUMINIUM SILLS WERE USED ON THE ORIGINAL 541 SHOW CAR AND ONLY A FEW EARLY ROAD CARS. THESE ARE VERY SCARCE.. "

My 1957 541 has aluminium sills, and is not an early road car (chassis#129)...are there any 541/R/S produced with sills of any other material than alumimium?

I had a new set made in Aluminium - cost significantly less than the amount being asked for these!

541R and 541S sills were made from GRP. The factory moulds for these have been in the hands of the JOC since the closure of Jensen Motors in 1976

Ye gads! There is at least one nought too many at the end there :roll: If I accepted aircraft glueing in the middle I could have a set made for about 5% of that price.
