Hi there,
my name is Daniel and I´m from Southern Germany. I recently bought a new restoration project. It is a 1960 Morris Mini Minor Mk1 first registered in August 1960.
It is almost complete except the front seats. Two of the rims are the correct riveted ones the other are later types and the engine has been replaced with a 1963 unit. Therefore I will look for some time related parts in future.
But the restoration will not start now as my next project is a 1965 Mk1 Woody.
So I have some time to find the correct parts. ;)

Regards,
Daniel

Hi,
here are some pictures:

The wheel caps are wrong and I believe the grille is also wrong.

And the interior... I´ve identified the front seats as Austin 1100 seats. If somebody needs them, just ask!

It is a 850cc from 1963 completly changed including gearbox.

quite rusty but unwelded so far.

The boot and floor has been repaired with a lot of glass fibre (must have been very cheap in earlier days :roll: ).

The word 'patience' springs to mind, but lots of good there there to smile about too.

Your car appears to be a Morris but has an Austin Grill. Most likely because they look nicer ;-)
