Ohw shit! that's going to be a cool project! Do you need to make a reinforced chassis? Or is it strong enough to withstand the V8 power Very Happy
Keep us updated! With a lot of nice pictures of course Razz

What kind of brand is it anyway? Like the rims.

It's a 1957 Morris Minor. Sadly I won't be stuffing a V8 in there, well not just now Smile
Plan is to get it back on the road, been sitting for 15 years, then likely sell it Need money for the SL respray Smile

Looking much the same lately, been replacing brake lines, gave it a wee service, and greasing, Windows should be going in next week, it's already better than when I picked it up.

Just spotted this thread. It is 7 years my Junior and bodywork looks pretty well on parr with mine. Dunno about the engine though. Mine isn't too brilliant.  

My Primary School Headmistress had a Splitty Series One when I started school in 1955 but when your 1000 Series came out in 1956 she and her husband bought new ones. I always liked the exhaust note from the Peashooter exhaust pipe. 

Putting a set of Widey's on,  or like you have, RoStyles TOTALLY transforms the look of a Moggy. Great to see it. Thank you.

Well at least it hasn't got a brain to go wrong like modern cars.
I know that has been in doubt for many a year in my case. But without one I couldn't have had the Stroke at Easter. MRI Scan did show up a brain, but the problem is how I use it that is in question. Sad
