[Saloon-lovers] Looking for the darndest thing

Hi List: Now don’t think I’m crazy, but I would like to restore a Morris
Minor. The one Traveler on eBay is too expensive.
As all of you know, the only way we can restore these cars and not go broke,
is to do most of the labor ourselves. So, I am looking for a restorable one.
Maybe a Traveler “Woodie” would do or what have you ?
They look like fun, and I only have room for a small car now that the Mark 2
is finished.
I am located in Oregon. (Yea I know, so much rain makes the brain mushy.)

Thanks
Dennis

Fun and extremely slow! Go for the convertible. At least you have top down fun
and it will feel like its moving faster.

The traveller is fun as wel, untill the inevitable happens, like with all
Minors: a wheel falls off. Make sure there is no SUV right behind you:-)))

Cheers!

Dennis!

A man after my own heart. Morris Minor Travelers! Extremely cool little
cars. But what do you think…that some of us Jaguar saloon freaks are
going to have a little woody tucked away, trying to figure out what to do
with it? Heck fire…our garages are stuffed full of Jaguar bits!

Me wanting a second garage, and my wife forcing me to build an extra room
instead! An outrage, really.

The speedo cable didn’t leave yesterday, by the way…today for sure.

Not necessarily. Pop in the 1275cc from a Midget, add a free flow exhaust,
and you have a car that won’t disgrace itself.-----Original Message-----

And a disc front conversion & a 5 speed box & locating rods to stop the axle
tramp - where will it end!

Massive amounts of Minor bits & tweaks for sale over here - not sure how much
finds its way across to Oregon, but they are fun cars. They used to race them
in Classic Saloons, but the A35 was lighter, would accept all the Spridget
tuning bits and gave the big Jags a run for their money on twisty tracks.

Funny you should mention axles in a Morris: we have a '67 Morris LCV (a
Morris Van) that has just eaten an axle - I removed it 1/2 hour ago. the
end of axle was not broken but looks like it was twisted or chewed off -
is this normal? Later tonight I will pull differential to get the
remains out and try to figure what went on.

Any info appreciated.

PS - Our Mark IX continues to perform beautifully - above the Morris
issues!

Hi Alan: I am looking for a Morris Minor that is NOT a sedan. What do you
have exactly.
I really appreciate your interest.

Thank you,
