Should a Mk1 jack be red, black or either colour?
To quote Tim Fin;I see red I see red I see red.
Thanks again for the drive last night.
All MK1 / MK2 jacks were indeed red.
The colour is a funny one though, if you are planning on repainting ithe best thiong to do is take the jack or a sample of the colour and get an aerosol mixed by a local paint company. My local firm charge about Ã‚Â£10.00 a tin and the match is almost always perfect.
Thanks for your answers. The jack in my Cooper S is black and is otherwise identical to the one in the Mk1 850 I've just bought. I wonder if it is a replacement ??

Nice to see you here on the forum and a pleasure to let you have a drive. Next, you will have to drive the 850 !
The red jacks are the most common but I have seen black ones as well – perhaps they were sourced from a different supplier?
Hello Al, the jacks i have for both my mk1 and mk2 cars are red.
all the best
The jack in my S is identical in every was, right down to the stickers. The welds look to be done they same and all. I think it likely there were two jack colours but, from what I read here, it is rare.
