I can only agree with the fact that they are a hoot to drive. As to not wanting to use it all the time, I can honestly say that it’s a much nicer car by using it, Those little bushes on the clutch lever were well worn when I changed the clutch. That is one of the nice things about a Minor, me and my mate started to do the clutch at 10 in the morning, found a list of worn and broken bits whilst doing it, went to Moss, who had everything in stock, got back and was driving it by 3 o’clock! Try that with your modern!

No, it hasn't gone anywhere yet.

Here are a few more pics of the worst bits. Constructive criticism welcome.

Crack in the front wing.

Morris 3.jpg

solid floors, and dry still, even in the shite weather.

Morris 4.jpg

 The worst bit, I suppose. Shocker mount.

Whilst the crustiness is a bit of an issue, for someone who can wield a grinder and a welder A maurice is a very easy thing to repair. Most of the floor and construction is flat sheet, and even if there is curvature, it's generally single meaning if you introduce a clubhammer into your repair toolkit, you're fine.

Even that pulled-out damper mounting looks fairly easily repairable.

I have no qualms about roffling it, but it'd have to be £22 a ticket! Would that work?

With the repair work that is needed, your market is somewhat more limited. I suspect a Roffle is not the right way to go on this. How about Marque-specific forum, or a well-known classics publication? Minors are usually very easy to sell to the right people.

It shouldn't be a problem to move on. I'm not in a desperate rush. I'll still use it over this winter if the 16 isn't finished, as that was what I originally bought it for. I haven't MIG welded before, but I have done a bit of gas in the past. Surely it can be THAT hard to master? Have you seen some of the monkeys who seem able a do it! With the boot and wheels painted it'll go on 'tebay for probably double this. But I just thought I'd offer it on here if someone else wants the fun* of doing it. It really isn't a bad car, and is solid in the important bits. We'll see.

I wish my 1100 had that little rust and ease of repairs. Even with my limited MIG experience and very (very) slow speed of working, I reckon I could get that fixed up no problem in a weekend or two.

There's a dedicated welding thread in open forums, but..

Actually, the welding bit isn't the hard bit. The hard bit is all the grinding, cutting, fabricating, folding and general pissing about that is needed for you to have a new bit of metal ready to weld into the car.

Mig Welding isn't too hard, but you absolutely need to have a practice on clean smooth metal first, get the hang of how to identify if you are too hot/cold too fast/slow too much/too little amperage or too high/too low voltage. Once you can weld on the bench, then you can try doing it upside down on your back under a car with spatter spraying in your hair and large gobs of white-hot metal burning holes in your ears.
