This 1961 Morris Minor convertible, registered in March of that year, has been upgraded with a 1098cc A-series engine and gearbox, as well as restored in 2021. This engine has also been overhauled and upgraded with a 12G295 Cooper head, 1 ½inch SU carburettor and full three-branch Maniflow exhaust system. Other upgrades include an alternator conversion, electronic fuel pump, 3.9 differential, Riley 1.5 brakes, new rear front brake cylinders, reconditioned front cylinders and a brake servo. The car also has a new steering rack, telescopic rear shock absorber conversion and new rear springs. The Everflex hood is also a recent fitment as are the carpets and Newton Commercial door cards and rear panels. There's also auxiliary gauges and a period radio. 

Accompanying the Minor is the V5C, assorted recent invoices, the driver's handbook and assorted MoT certificates from 1995 onwards. There's also a set of spare keys as well. The odometer shows 56,653 miles and the last MoT expired in  October 2007 after being tested at 55,355 miles. As an historic vehicle, the Minor is now MoT-exempt though.  

In September 2007, the Minor was recorded as a Category D Insurance Loss - Vehicle Damaged But Repairable, Insurer Decided Not To Repair.
