Incredibly rust-free Morris Minor Convertible. Modified for daily use with a 1990 Suzuki Swift GT engine mated to a 5-speed Suzuki Samurai gearbox - really sweet motor and enables the Mog to easily keep up with modern traffic. Ventilated disc brakes from the Swift were also added at the same time.

Modifications Include:

Custom motor mounts
Custom drive shaft
4 x new radial tyres
All front suspension bushings replaced (poly)
New Front Dampers
New Top Trunnions
New Tie-rod ends
New Rear Damper Links
New Top Boot Cover
New Front Floor Mats
New Stainless and Teak Luggage Rack
Serviced with spark plugs, engine and gearbox oil, oil filter, coolant drained and refilled
Rear engine seal - a British car that doesn't leave its mark on the garage floor!

Convertible top is tan color in perfect condition with clear rear window

A real crowd pleaser and a blast to drive.

Please bear in mind it is a 55 year old car so don't bid if you want air conditioning and power steering! - sold as is where is with no warranty expressed or implied.

Just bought this jewel and looking forward to seeing how it drives out with the conversion.
