Where can I buy a BMC o/s sill for a 1965 Austin A40 Farina?

I am trying to rebuild a 1965 Austin A40 Farina but cannot find a new original off-side sill. The pattern parts are largely unsatisfactory and I have seen mark 1 sills turn up but these are different to the later cars. The car is very original and unmolested and so it deserves some decent parts. Help me find a new sill please John. Thanks

Hi there - I'd say your first port of call should be the Austin A40 Farina Owners Club, which I know has access to a good supply of NOS parts. If they don't have one, they'll know someone who will.
