    Very interesting gearchange mod.
    Virtually identical to the factory fitment on my old Dellow (manufactured back in 1950) … and Allards of various types in the nineteen fifties.
    They worked perfectly.

    I think Dellow used a spare TRE for the rear pivot.

    My gearchange is very similar to ListerJP2 as is the detent. So far it works well with no problems. The gear lever needs moving forwards a few inches, I don't know how it came to be so far back. Winter job comming up.

    Pic is a good find.

    But as a Dellow-owner ( I've still got one in pieces in the garage … ) the wooden dash is wrong as are many of the switches & instruments.

    His car, his choices, personally I think it looks right.

    It aint "right". But you are welcome to your opinion.

    And I think it looks tacky in the extreme. Good taste/skill and ownership of a Classic Car don't always go together …

    Perhaps you should consider posting a picture of your Dellow to show us why we should not be liking what we see in the picture? IMO the one in the picture looks nice enough to me.

    Perhaps you should consider looking at https://www.dellowregister.co.uk/ to find the history and numerous pictures.

    Listerjp2 has come up with his interpretation (Mk2) it’s interesting, but missing the extra detent to select reverse, and works for a Marina based Marlin Roadster and may well work with Triumph based Roadsters which have the same sort of mechanical assembly and history.

    Dellow have their own history, much older than Marlins, of course they get customised dashboards, but Marlins were always a kit car, so subject to personal interpretation!
