Hey everyone
so today we made huge progress and managed to pull the morris out of the shed and parked it under a sheltered are just next to it. We found a bit more rust than we thought there was around the guttering,doors, and a little round the front panels. Maybe with a bit of luck tommorow we might have a look at the wheels and see if theres been any oil leak in the drums.
the pictures show my grandad backing the morris into the shed smiling smiley
Cheers

Tim, if the rego has not been 'on hold' for the car, you need to go through a 're vin' process when you are ready to get the car on the road. I understand this involves a very extensive check of the car and is a bit expensive. Various figures are often thrown around but my understanding is that it could be in excess of $NZ500 (have no idea if this is correct!!), plus of course the actual registration fee which luckily is only about $111 per annum. I suggest you phone somebody at NZTA in your area so that you will have the official info on this. You have an interesting project there so good luck with it!!

Tim,
There are numerous web-sites that have info on serial numbers etc and one I find helpful is minormania.com There is an attachement on the left side you can go to and it should head you in the correct direction. Seems to cover all the models from early side-valves to the various stages of introducing other models like LCV's. Good luck, and enjoy the world of M/M with your grandad.
