I did a training coarse on A series automatic transmissions in one of those, well kitted out workshop and classroom. I enjoyed the experience but got lumbered with all the automatics as I was the only mechanic at the garage I worked at that had done it. Happy days, I loved rebuilding those forward clutches :lol:
Love the series 5 Morris Oxford rear lights and fins
Many had BMC registration plates

That one was owned by Wayne Carini, there’s a bit on it in an episode of Chasing Classic Cars.

I am very pleased to hear a reply from a mechanic who actually worked at a BMC dealership.
It is a pity you can't record more of your experiences.
Most of us are amateur arm-chair enthusiasts, with varying levels of ability but not any real experience of workshop pressure.

In my early mini days I was privileged to know a man who served in WW2 as an aircraft fitter and afterwards worked for Austin dealerships in Sydney. I wish some of his stories and insights were recorded and passed on in the style of 'Zen and art of car maintenance'.

Here's one I found on the interweb that was used by the Leyland Young Lions Team 1971 - 1972 in Australia.
