MK1 Morris Mini Minor. Restored. 1964 Model.
An old hobby of mine, This classic 1964 Mini I restored during my
apprenticeship years as a challenge. I am glad I saved this car from the
scrapheap, unaware as I was of its age and rarity at the time.
If I knew I would have taken it back to its original state. Still I am
happy with the outcome and one could argue that all the work is reversible
in that it could be re-done to make the car as it was from the factory.
I am not an expert. I do not work with cars, I work in Engineering but I
learned slowly as I went along. First MOT was a long fail list, but I went
back and spent a few months putting everything right. Took advice and won
out in the end ;-)
All the best....
