Then why does my NOS Smiths gear reduction drive, in the original box, 
have a date of 1 July 1971 on it?  Is this a retro copy of an earlier 
version?  From the many Bugeyes I have owned and seen come through my 
friend's restoration shop, when the early cars arrived in un-restored 
condition, they had the knurled nut.  All the later cars had the hex nut.
