What Austin marques have the same parts an 1800?

Have you any idea what other Austin marques would have been fitted with the same wiper motor as a 1968 1800?

Your car is what the British Motor Corporation referred to internally as ADO17. As well as your Austin 1800 version, it was sold as the Morris 1800, Wolseley 18/85, Austin 2200, Morris 2200 and Wolseley Six. Chances are it was a Lucas item but you can get a replacement from a specialist. Holden offer a suitable replacement,which costs £129 (not including VAT).

Reader Timothy Perks add: 'There are many websites that provide a free download of Lucas parts, serial numbers and associated vehicles in the official Lucas catalogue. To name one, there is an MG enthusiasts web site which is easily located.'
