I bought this car 06/26/1970 (pink slip) and did a semi restoration in 1972. At that time I installed a 1972 MG Midget and transmission. Many parts were chrome plated at that time. Repainted the car green and install all new interior upholstery and carpet. [URL]http://www.garymolitor.com/morris_minor/good-morris-01.jpg[/URL] The car was driven regularly until 1984 when the transmission failed. In 1996 the car was disassembled for restoration. Since that time it has been stored undercover outdoors. Over the years I have bought($5,000)most of the parts necessary for a full restoration.

Here is a partial list of new parts.
New rebuilt gearbox, Aluminum head, Rear doors, Interior floor pans, Interior and exterior wood parts, Extra doors, Windshield, All rubber moldings, Brake lines, Custom free flow exhaust headers, Front disk brakes and big rears plus lots of small parts.

I have chosen to continue restoring this car. Next is an engine rebuild. Engine has been dissembled. Cam is shot and block needs to be re-bored plus new pistons + rings. The price will be adjusted to reflect the work completed.

The car is totally complete mechanically.
All body panels are dent free. Existing inner door structure has been cut to a accommodate speakers. Engine is dissembled and in process of being rebuilt. Asking price will increase when complete. Tan vinyl upholster is serviceable but removed from car. head liner good with small tear. Parts needed for restoration are: Rear door glass and aluminum drip molding and maybe some small wood parts. Also, includes many chrome parts, new trafficators and new wiring harness. Tires are old cracked 1973 steel radials. Comes with tow bar and industrial leather sowing machine.
