The Morris Minor is the quintessential British classic car and this example is in excellent condition.
It comes complete with its wonderful registration number 92XFK.
It was acquired by a retired motor engineer in 2013 as a car that needed to be restored.
He had previously restored two Minis to an excellent standard for his granddaughter and grandson as their first cars and the plan was to restore this Minor for his own use.
This he has done as a true labour of love without regard for the time involved. He fully stripped the car and replaced all panels as needed.
He then repainted the car in maroon with the addition of a contrasting cream roof which mirrors the wonderful new Duo-Tone interior which he fitted. The work on the interior also includes new door cards, a new roof lining and a new professionally made carpet set.
The mechanicals and suspension were checked, cleaned, repaired or replaced where necessary as the car was rebuilt. Chrome parts were re-chromed where needed.
The engine was fully rebuilt with new pistons and a unleaded cylinder head which was bought from ESM Morris Minors was fitted and the carburettor was rebuilt.
Parts replaced with new include a genuine SU petrol pump, battery, radiator, alternator, window rubbers, wheel cylinders, brake hoses, bushes and brake seals along with numerous other parts. The history file contains all the invoices for these parts which add up to over £4500.
It has also been upgraded with a new brake servo.
It is only now for sale as the engineer has started a restoration of another Mini and he only has a single car garage.
The current MOT runs until June 2019 although it is MOT exempt. The car will be licensed for twelve months from the date of sale for the new owner at no cost as the car qualifies for the Historic Taxation class.
If you want own and drive an inflation proof car that brings a smile to you and all who see her then this is an ideal first classic car. Historic Road Tax is free and spare parts are readily available from the numerous Morris Minor specialists that can be found throughout the country.
