Custom Morris Minor Pickup - A few pictures to start off

Anything goes - chassis, V6's, V8's etc.
Got one on its way from Italy. Then I'll rebuild the existing one at some stage. I am assured the one from Pasquale Coppola is good and he has great feedback from his other clients. Fingers crossed :toothy5: :toothy5: :lol:

Brooklands yesterday and bumping into an old school mate after 37 years in his white convertible. Wet day but great fun!

Unfortunately we never made it to Brooklands yesterday. :D Sounds like you enjoyed yourself and what a lovely surprise to catch up with your friend. Lovely photos of your pick up - did they let you drive on a different track this year? As the weather was iffy were there still a few nutters going up the hill?

Got out on the track but the hill wasn't open. Probably just as well with a mixed bag of gears!

:? sorry to hear you have a little replacement job to do - I missed your post about the hill at Brooklands, so I guess you have been nursing Oddie a bit for a while? Hope all goes smoothly with the removal and replacement so you can get out for some more 'lurking' soon!

See you there.

I'm just down the road from there this weekend but I'm at Roverfest at Wroxhall Abbey on Sunday with the P6b, or I would have gone.

Good to meet with you and your family today and even share a very civilised brunch.
Found our conversation very interesting especially as we've incurred many similarities with our respective builds.
It's great to hear that you stuck fast to your concept through to final article with a little help from Valley Gas but you've ended up with a truly neat and unique Pick Up. A real Head Turner and credit to you. Sounds great as well and has a lovely low stance.

Here's some photos before shade came along.
