They're a neat looking car, from way back. I was looking at one once, had more bodyfiller in it than you could shake a finger at. Still would have been a fun first car.:)

They're basically the predicessor to the Mini. A little bigger and older looking though.

1098cc engine and crossply tyres.

my dad had one for his first car, he put th carb off a cortina (cant remember what the carb is called, was it the GT maybe?) ran lean as, blue/black smoke coming out the pipe, he drove it like that for about a month.......
you still see a few around NZ, even some with V8 in them :D
but most of them are restored or are still driven by the original owners who bought them of the showroom floor, and have only put 20,000 k's on them :cool:

Here's a web site of a guy who has 3 of 'em.


When I was a student I owned a 1962 Morris Minor van, then later a 1961 4-door saloon.

A buddy of mine has a Minor Traveller. He dropped in a Datsun engine. Killer car.
Went to a So-Cal Brit show this past fall and some guy dropped in a 67 corvette engine. He re-made the fire wall by taking a steel wheel barrow and welding it in place.
I have pictures, give me a few day to post some

In the book Pro Paint & Body by HPBooks the author covers some of the restoration his Minor, before that I'd never heard of them.
