If you are new to the board or have never made a post before, don't just lurk around, post in here and introduce yourself and your Minor if you have one. It would be great to hear from you.

1964 morris minor pick up

Postby cliverl » Sun Aug 12, 2018 6:59 pm

hi all from
as a new member i thought i should introduce myself and my 1964 pick up.
i have known this vehicle since 1997 when i did the work for its last owner to get it through its last MOT.
even then it was apparent that the "layer cake " approach to floor and sill repairs had been applied to get it through the annual test.
after it passed its test in 1997 it sat buried in my neighbours garage till about 5 yrs ago when i bought it from him.
i have since repaired the n/s with all new panels and am now working on the o/s.
a pleasant surprise was to find that the chassis was sound and had a TNT carriers label still stuck on it so i think the chassis was replaced before my neighbour bought it!
progress has been sporadic as i have to keep the family cars on the road as well as the SE6A Scimitar i used to own.
i will upload some pictures when i can get my resident IT expert (son) to show me how it is done!
regards
clive

:D Welcome to the forum Clive. Look forward to seeing your progress photos in due time. Not quite the same ride experience from a Minor pick up compared to your previous classic Scimitar - but just as exciting!
