Badging on a Plus 2

Thanks guys on the badge and seat question.

Gordon, thanks for the tip on the Pye radios. I reckon for those that didn't have a radio when brought to the States they probably installed what ever they sold at the dealer?or it was done by the owner...guess I'll never know. Just got in a Plus 2 parts manual and now I see Pye radios page.

Regarding the radio, Mike . . . as you know, mine has a Phillips, complete with AM, FM and SW, which makes me think it was supplied in England before shipping, as I don't think we were using SW in North American cars in 1970. Happy to be corrected on that, though . . .

Hi as the peterako mail I can confirm he describes the badging as it is on my 130/5 (73011152) and mine doesn't have a tilting rear seat back either, hope this helps. John
