A time consuming, extensive and (no doubt) expensive restoration to show condition: excellent body and paint, excellent floors, sills, rockers, spring mounts, etc. Excellent drive train: 1100cc engine, semi close ratio ribcase transmission.
All new interior, new headliner, refinished interior woodwork, even the dome light works. New cloth covered wiring harness, new shocks, fuel pump, starter, generator, and everything works. Beautifully trimmed interior, original tool rolls, inertia reel belts, the list is kind of endless. Ready for concours use.
And what a perfect car for a family of four to head for the local car show...even room for folding chairs and a cooler. And with the roof rack that comes with the car, gosh, you can carry luggage for a family weekend trip!
There it is. Gorgeous in every way and from every angle
Drove it home the day it arrived, was easily cruising at 75 mph (and passing everyone), smooth and quiet. Having driven cars with Spridget gearboxes my entire life, amazed at a 'box that is close to silent in 1st gear. And while the engine would be livelier with twin SUs and headers, it had no trouble maintaining 70-75 mph. Impressive for a Morris Minor.
If it is taking off this site soon, it because it might very well have found a new home....in my barn.Printer-Friendly version
