Looks like my 1500 subframe, unless I'm missing something?

Same shape mount as the 1850, two bolts to the subframe, one to the donk.

Question is then, where did I get it from??? I've had it sitting in my yard since goodness knows when on the misapprehension it was Sprint!

Anyone need a 1500 subframe?

Its only for the 1500 Auto, the subframe for a 1500 manual as the extra A shape at the rear to take the gearbox mount doesn't it?

Only just seen this, Jod and Julian are perfectly correct, it's a 1500 Auto subframe and unique to that model. I have one just like it lying around in my yard from the white car I broke last year. I'd not seen one before that turned up either! I'll take it off your hands if you like, it's one I can safely cut about for my Vauxhall conversions and it'll never be missed by someone needing a slant frame.

Also suitable for 1500 O/D, even though they usually have the triangular extension which isn't actually needed with the overdrive gearbox.
