This early Minor is a great investment and, of course, an enjoyment opportunity with loads of character and great for pottering down to the shops or the pub (for half a pint!!).
There is some work to do on 'Carrie' but can be used and improved over time and there is certainly room to add value at this price.
PLEASE NOTE: I can arrange to carry out the welding work and investigate/rectify the gearbox whine but then I will be asking considerably more than the cost of the work carried out. So selling 'as is' due to time constraints and to allow someone else to add the value.
