There is a reassuring collection of twenty five invoices and documents recording money spent by a very recent owner which record components bought for work done on the car. There are also invoices to the current owner showing the cost of a total respray, a set of flashing indicators and some maintenance work on the brakes which we have just competed .
As well as being a really pretty car this Ruby is structurally very sound and is a pleasure to drive as the engine is very sweet and pulls well. The four speed gearbox is a delight to use, there are no nasty noises from the transmission or suspension and no clunks when you go into reverse. It steers without wandering and importantly it also stops which is in no small part down to its very effective Morris Minor hydraulic brakes!
The interior is lovely with patinated but not overworn, cracked or torn leather upholstery, good trim panels and the winding windows all work. The headlining may well have been replaced but it looks in keeping with the car which still has its painted wood effect dashboard fitted with a full set of working instruments.
In summary this Ruby is a really good little motor car which performs every bit as well as it looks. It will be perfectly at home on country lane motoring and will also attract a lot of admiring attention at shows and rallies. It is also very sensibly priced so it represents very good value for money!
