early cars came with the jack shown in my post here :- viewtopic.php?t=14929&p=71769 . Later cars came with a scissor jack as shown in the parts list available in the Wiki .

My 1967 Plus 2 has the jack as shown in the link, with the pin that goes up into the sill. Should have a ratchet handle to operate it but mine is currently missing :-(
Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine!

Ratchet handles for the Metallfacture jacks regularly come up on Ebay and seem to be around £25
