How fast does she go when you open her up?
Uhm... not very!! LOL
The "official" top speed is 74mph and I think Tiddles is probably still capable of that now that I've sorted out the Ignition, but it gets bouncy and
scary above 65!!! ROFL
Gordi, that is a beautiful machine.
It is a cute wee thing, you wouldn't believe how many complete strangers stop to smile and wave at us.
There's a great Morris Minor club scene, websites and spare parts supply chain too which is a real bonus.
Thats a sweet little car you have.
In 1974 i bought a 1966 MG Midget, with a 1967 Austin Healy 1275 motor in it. I loved that thing and wish I still had it
Hey there VBT!
Yeah the Midget was a wee beauty too! Much sportier than the Minor...
Lots of Minor owners seem to have retro-fitted a version of the 1275 motor too?
Mine still has the original 1098cc A-Series in it and it's surprisingly "peppy" now that it's running well.
Would you ever return to owning a Classic Morris/MG?
