odd chrome trims

Post  IAIN on Mon Jun 14, 2010 5:36 pm

Hello, I have a couple of old elf or hornet doors. They have a strange chrome moulding on them, I was interested if any one here had see the like before ?

The door glass is dated 1964.





Thanks Iain.

Some one has tried to personalise them, a bit" mini traveller style" to my way of thinking?

They could be some very rare Viking Hornet Sport doors? Made by Crayford.

Made in 64 and 65.

I would say almost definitely Viking Hornet Sport doors looking at the way they are not parallel chrome strips. What a find!

What an amazing find! Too bad they aren't still attached to a Hornet!

I got the doors in a job lot so have no idea about the car unfortunately.
If anyone has a viking and wants door trims, then get in touch.
