I used to have a pair of original 60's Armstrong adjustable dampers on one of my Cortinas. One knob soft/hard.

I should have kept them they were probably better than what I have on there now!

My Rover has original works dampers. They are non adjustable for bump, rebound etc. I think you can adjust them for ride height.

That would correspond to the period. Cobras were first fitted with adjustable armstrong and then the Koni as an option. Some are on the market but do not know the price...

Following the fact that all historic content and regulations were hard to find on the FIA Website, a dedicated area has been created and is now working. Please find it here - http://www.fia.com/historic

If looking for all Historic Regulations please look here - http://www.fia.com/historic-regulations

No problem, on updates they are achieved all year and Appendix K is updated according to them - precision/clarification - unless they are fundamental changes which then are introduced on the next year version.

Latest update:

2016 Appendix K - Technical regulations for historic cars - published on 29.09.2016 - application from: 29.09.2016

Please note, under Art. 7.3.6 to Appendix K and relevant classification update made under Appendix I to Appendix K that we have started the process for recognition of so-called Group 1 "1/2" or "+".

But as detailed under Art. 7.3.6, these cars are not to be recognised as whatever the applicant wishes to have to suit its own need of "modern historic performance", these cars will have to be submitted on the basis that:

Only modifications explicitly authorised in the period regulations and legally used on the model concerned are applicable. Proof of period specification will be required for all non-homologated components and/or modifications.

Therefore, sort your regulations out and period proofs, regulations being relevant for a particular year and also the fact that only "THE" national Championship will be recognised.

Louis, if horizontal sliding windows can replace vertical openers, and mechanisms be removed ( to save weight) would window still need to be openable ? ie you cannot just put a fixed window in a Cortina and throw everything away ?

If refering to 7.3.7, a horizontal sliding window may replace a vertical sliding window but it needs to have a opening and way to open yes.

Hopefully that excludes those horrible fixed windows with a mini slider found in some rally cars!

Did I see a new version dated march 10th 2017? If I'm right, the window mechanism can be thrown away (not too far not too strong!) as to Grp2, 4 and 5.

There is even a version published on 7th of April 2017, but the window mechanism may only be removed on Competition Touring Cars and Grand Touring Cars from Period E onwards and if original windows are removed. So keep it in Group 1 and Group 3.
