Back in the 1960’s if you needed a brake pipe you would go to a dealer and if you were very lucky he would find one, readymade and shaped, in steel and you would be on your way. In practice most times your car would go into a garage and the old pipe would be changed for you, at a cost.
In the early Seventies Val and I were in Copenhagen when we found a few “copper brake pipe” sets on offer. The rest, as they say, is history.
Since then Automec have been developing an exclusive, comprehensive range of pipe sets to suit left and right hand drive vehicles. Rather like painting the Forth Bridge the job never gets finished. Every week new details are received concerning yet another variation on the MGB or the Mini and this information gets collated into Automec’s already vast range.
We would be surprised if your specific vehicle isn’t included but if this is the case we will tailor make you one at a very much reduced price.
