Hello,

Looking for help identifying what was standard spec for a 1985 City E, I have seen some with one centre clock and others with the 2 clocks in front of the driver. I am pretty sure it was brown cards and furniture as Targa Red, 4 spoke steering wheel or 2? Looking to go back in time and refit as original.

Cheers

This is for a non-uk car but may help.

Looks like houndstooth seats, brown trim and two clock setup. Definitely ignore the wheels, uk cars didn't get those

And rust a plenty from 3 yrs old.

Early 85 has single dial and no side repeaters, later 85 has twin dials and side repeaters.

.... what was standard spec for a 1985 City E....

There are 3 standard specs for a 1985 City E!      (up to Sept '85, Sept-Nov '85, & Nov '85 on).

It all depends on when it was built.... when was yours registered?

My B reg city e is targa red, it has the brown trim, brown houndstooth seats and a single centre speedo. It has silver logos on the doors and a “e” on the boot. steering wheel is a 2 spoke with the Austin Rover badge. I think mine is a late 84 early 85.
