I've just been having a clean up this past week.

 

I found this Ignition Switch, I think it came with a bundle lot a few years back, but not one I recognise, it may not even be from a Mini.

 

Can anyone help?

Identify that?

Yes, it's a Lowe & Fletcher ignition steering lock.

 

My work here is done :mrcool:

I've been informed you might need a little more information than i supplied....

 

It's a Lowe & Fletcher lock so fitted to one or more British Leyland vehicles.

Chrome key aperture as opposed to plastic so 1970's.

 

Can't quite make out the casting number to Google it.... so given the 'angle of dangle' of that lock my best guess would be 18G9059 fitted to the Morris Marina (circa 1973-75).

You would know this vehicle as the Leyland Marina.       

-the full stop after MARINA was fitted as the boot was drilled for the name CAVANIA, this was to have been the new model name for the Australian E-series engine version of the Marina (the name change was overruled by BLMC).

Ah OK, cheers for that.

 

Could well be for a Marina, not that I ever dabbled in them !

 

Yeap, looking at the link I'd say that what it was for.
