    I don't see that it matters!
    Anyway, how's this for a shot in the dark. I'm fairly certain that the TVR Tasmin used Cortina lower wishbones/suspension arms [with Granada hubs /upright] .If I'm correct then maybe the likes of David Gerald TVR could help.

    On a tangent, how about converting to wishbone off a Locost. I have a LocUst which uses cortina front suspension and it is a worthwhile upgrade coil overs can transform the handling. Not done it yet, my time is spent on my Land-Rover and Marlin.

    I don't think your locost uses the front sub frame of the cortina like the Berly dose, have you tried contacting Danny Nelson? He can usually help with berlinetta spare parts.

    I seen a video where a guy used locost wishbones but there was cutting and welding involved and am really not wanting to do that. I hope I can find one as it’s stopping the rebuild and the front end is nearly complete.
