Well, as some of you may know I plucked up the courage to sell my last '94 Mini Sprite last year (http://www.theminifo...build-update-1/).
I didn't immediately plan on getting another Mini, and infact have had a few cars since then. However i always knew that I had an itch for a Mk1/2. Eventually i scratched this itch, and i now own a 1965 Morris Mini Minor.
There was some drama picking it up, for a start i live between Edinburgh and Aberdeen, and i had to travel to Swansea to pick it up, which as you know is a very long way to drive a 1965 Mini home. To make matters worse, i had one day to do it in AND the owner put DIESEL in it. So leaving 5am on a Wednesday, i arrived at 4am Thursday, in Edinburgh with work at 8:30am in Aberdeen.
BUT the car did make it.
The current spec is:
- Later Austin 998 fitted
- Dunlop D1's Alloys all round
- Rear Hilo's
And the plans are:
- Paint over Winter
- Build up a 1275 to go in
- New brakes & suspension setup
And DRIVE next summer. I haven't had a chance to take many pictures, but i have some from my phone here.
