Description 1966 MORRIS MINOR 1000 WHITE - Restored

1966 Morris Minor 1000 – Restored 6
years ago.

I bought this car as a shell with no windows, one wing, no engine or gearbox.

Having spent thousands of hours working on it, I now have to sell it before I
have time to enjoy it, I don’t have the time to spend on it any more, or the
room and a child on the way.

This is a 1966, Morris Minor 1000. With a 1098cc A series engine and 4 speed
gear box.

This car came to me as Oxford blue, albeit a very patchy one

This shell has been stripped back, new quarter panels, as these always rust, 4
replacement wings, new head lights, side lights, and rear lights refurbished.
Brand new window rubbers, brand new door rubbers, bonnet rubbers

It is now Cornish Cream, which is still a British Leyland colour, why not Old
English White you ask? The rubbers for the rear wings are closer to Cornish
Cream than OEW!

Wheels refurbished in White to match the front grill.

Brand new chrome bumpers, front and back, new chrome all over the front grill,
new chrome on the bonnet badge.

Hand painted red strip along the coach line, painted by a traditional sign
writer who is entrusted by Rolls Royce to do customers classic cars.

Red Vinyl seats, with matching door cards, custom made red leather door pulls,
new red carpet to match.

Drivers seat has new
strapping and foam.

Brand new head lining.

Switches either replaced with matching originals, or replaced for something
more convenient, the washer pump, which was never any good, is now electric,
with a button that looks like the original dash mounted pump.

Single speed heater.

Spare wheel in white, boot floor carpeted.


Engine / Engine Bay:
A series 1098cc. Engine painted, and serviced before being put in.
Engine bay has been stone chipped, and painted to keep it looking fresh.

Wiring loom has been updated, parts replaced, and then all tapped up to look
clean and tidy.

New battery wiring and terminals.

New HT leads, distributor cap, rotor arm and points. New plugs.

Recent oil and filter change.

New horn.

Pretty much everything in the engine bay has been painted or cleaned,
refurbished and replaced.

Brand new AP brake master cylinder, new brake lines, new shoes all around and
snail cams.

Brand new brake master
cylinder, brake pipes, shoes and wheel cylinders.


Bad parts:

Washer pump needs wiring up.

Engine has started to make a bit of a knocking noise under hard acceleration.

Could do with the flasher unit changing, as it’s slightly too fast.

Despite being welded up when the car was stripped, the B pillars are cracked
again, which is a common fault on all Morris Minors.

Fuel gauge doesn’t work. I have tried to take the sender out of the tank, but
the bolts won’t move. I just keep it topped up all of the time.

The boot doesn’t lock, no key that I have, fits it.

The bootlid is
starting to rot, and could do with replacing.

The car hasn’t moved
for over two years as I no longer have any time or space to work on it.

It was MOT’d when it
was parked up.

Because it has been sat
down the side of the house, it has gathered a few scratches from the local
cats, but nothing major.

One tyre is flat. I
would think the brakes are stuck on, on the rear, but I can knock these off the

I have receipts for £1000’s, there are things I don’t have receipts for with
must total just as much.

If there are any questions you would like to ask, fire away, I know this car
inside out, and despite having a love hate relationship with it, it has to go!

I have pictures of just
about everything, from the day we collected it, to being stripped down,
pictures of braking parts ready to put in, pictures of nuts and bolts etc to
how it stands now.

I hope the bad parts haven’t put you off, as this really is a good car, which
needs a loving new home.

These pictures are from
2 years ago. I can provide pictures of specific things if needed.

The car is SORN, so
will need to be taken away either on a trailor or recovery truck.

Car comes complete with
V5C (registration document)

Viewing essential.
