  • She now looks even better than when I got her.

LH Drive. Rust free underneath and in the panels. I couldn't believe it when I went to see it for the first time (it was British after all) :)

The following mechanicals upgraded by a previous owner at least 15 years ago:
1275 cc engine.
Front disc brakes (Midget ?) with booster. Rear drums changed to Midget type parts (they did not work well and or not put in well).

I have done or had done the following:
I had rear drum brakes rebuilt with all Minor parts due to the previous poor brake job.

Black painted wheels were powder coated in a beige color to look more like the traditional "olde English white".
Old deteriorating bias-ply tires were replaced with five new 145R14 radials.
New poly bushes in the rear suspension and all but lower arm of the front suspension (tough for me to do with torsion bar removal so going to have a mechanic do those). Will have new steering rack gaiters put on at that time.

Used great product from "Griot's Garage" to one-step cut the minor scratches and rub marks while providing a protective finish. Griot's Garage has great stuff! Check them out online.
