is my 1935 Pre-series Morris Eight two door saloon. It was
rebuilt from a set of rusty parts which contained nearly all
of the original components apart from the petrol pump. The
restoration took nearly two years and was finished in 1991.
Since then it has been to a number of Morris Register National
rallies and on the last two Mannekin Pis events.
is my 1934 Morris Minor tourer which I bought in 1991 in need
of only paint and trim. It was back on the road in 1996 and
has been on the last three Morris Register London to
Brighton runs. It has an extensive competition history and
covered nearly 80,000 miles before the war on trials.
With two other Minors it won several team awards in
project was bought in 1998 and I intended to have it on the road
in 2000. It was used by Oxford undergraduates in the sixties and
is in original condition including the interior which I had hoped
to retain. Five years ago it was repainted by hand and I am currently
removing this paint to expose the original cellulose. Unfortunately
some of the panels had been taken down to the bare metal so a complete
respray was inevitable. This can is now on the road (September 2001)
and the restoration can be found by following the link on the picture.
Morris Minor saloon
car was last on the road in 1963 which is when the picture was taken.
It was dismantled that year and has spent the last 38 years in various
attics. This means that it is in the condition that it would have been
38 years ago. The pictures on the link page (click on picture) show it
in the attics and as a pile of small pieces when I brought it home. It
is the most challenging of projects as the wooden frame for the body is
a bundles of sticks. The originality of the kit is unusual as the engine
is the original and all of the interior trim has survived including the
carpets although they are threadbare.
