Hi there all, i´m new at the forum.
I bought a Bagheera last week witch i am trying to get back to road worthy condition again.
It´s been off the road for a couple of decades so . . .

The most important parts missing or  broken are as follows:

* right had passenger door window

* The transparent lamp cowers in the front bumper.

* The "radiator grill"

I would be most grateful if any of you could sell me any of these parts or lead me in the right direction.

Best regards Aksel in Oslo

Hej Aksel

Welcome to the forum! I'm sure you can get help on this one from the Bagheera experts here Wink Not being one of them, I just wanted to say "hi" Smiley

I suppose the important question is whether it is a Mk1 or a Mk2?

I have a lot of Mk2 bits but it looks as if they are all heading to a fellow Scot in Dundee.

Hey Aksel. I have a friend who is also restoring a Bagheera and I think he has another car he uses for parts. I'll give him a call and check a bit. Would probably be better since we also live in Norway, close to Drammen.

Have you also tried at Simon's....?

Hi there all, and thank you for friendly words.
My car is a 77 model.  Chassis X65508X452117
1424cc

That makes it a series two i suppose.
My knowledge about these cars are absolutely at a minimum, but i´m working on it.
Along the way i´m hoping to put it back in nice working order  Wink

Anders, i live about 25km east of Drammen so that would be splendid if your friend had some parts i could buy of him . . .

Regards Aksel

Hi Aksel.
Congratulation, always nice to hear from new Bagheera-owners.
When you say radiator grill, I guess you mean a grill in the frontbumper. If that is the case, I can tell you that there is no such thing. Wether its the S1 or S2, there is just a big open hole into the radiator. And that is completely original.

Seriously ? What where they smoking  Wink Anything bigger than a bee and your *piiiip*
I love the little thing, as a matter a fact i love cars with soul and personality you don´t see everyday in general so this one adds nicely in my garage.

What about the plastic frames around "fog lights" and repeaters ? Mine are cracked and yellowish.

Cheesy

But modern cars are the same, just look in the bumper areas, where the real rad inlets usually are. They are normally only covered by a few cromed bars or similar.

Indeed, it just came as a surprise to me that this is how it was meant to be, after all we are talking high class French engineering here  Wink  Still i would put my money on that eastern European  Absinth ( smuggled into France ) has something to do with it . . .

Hi Spyros.

I am sorry, and you are right. Just went out to check on that old wreck of a S2, I´ve got out in the back, and completely up against the radiator, there is this fine squared-masked grill......... Damned, thought I was a Bagheera-expert Wink.
