My understanding is that COB/COX cars were not as consistent car-to-car as the CSX cars, sometimes individually spec’d by the buyer/customer and built accordingly as bespoke cars by AC. This was a different situation to the CSX cars that were, I understand, spec’d as a batch according to the supply contracts let by Shelby.
It would seem to me that the MF 135 dash lights were possibly a cheaper “knock off” of the Lucas lights, and as the “Ferguson” in Massey Ferguson was a British company, it’s conceivable that AC used those lights on COB/COX race cars.
Totally co-incidentally, I spent many hours behind the wheel of both an MF 35 and MF 135, and once in my much younger days, visited the MF factory at Sunshine in Melbourne, Australia.
