Morris Minor Custom

Final


 

 

Morris Minor Custom red chop top full frame MGB engine

 

This is a complete custom build that is based on a frame built by Fatman Fabrication and features air bags all the way around. Power is from a slightly modified MGB engine backed by a 5 speed transmission and powers the wheels through a 8" rear end. The body has a 3" chop top and brought forward 6". This helps to give it an appearance that the rear is long and gives it the look of an American car. Adding to this the trunk lid was sectioned and is significantly smaller. The front end was welded together and flips forward in a unique manner that allows the front bumper to remained fixed (a law in Bermuda). All of the lights are Lucas and are frenched.

 

The owner wanted the satisfaction of final assembly so it was only partially assembled prior to shipping out.
