Just bought a 1960's Portafold, advice required

Post by bakers-bar » Mon, 17 Nov 2008, 6:39 pm

Having just bought my first Portafold I need some advice on what seals should be on the edges?

Did the early ones come with a jockey wheel? the one on this doesn't look right.

Spare wheel required, hub caps required!

Would also like to see more pictures or possibly look at another one to see what mine should be like. Any info would be gratefully appreciated.

P.S. I'm going to pull it with my 1971 VW bay window camper.

Seals for Portafold

Post by Gordon McLaren » Mon, 17 Nov 2008, 9:02 pm


Follow the above link for seals on Portafold sides to ends. Look at wheel near studs to see if stamped like mine 21A2744. This is just a standard Mini wheel and uses the hubcap 88G337, available new from Mini suppliers, or eBay etc, but only if the stub axle does not protrude through the wheel centre.

Otherwise ask Matthew, he has a supplier for the other style, deeper dished caps. Here's the link for these caps.
