Time to make a build thread for my new project car, I know some were following my old thread for the Datsun, but figured this new project deserves it's own thread. Here it is, a 1962 Australian built Morris Major Elite: It is basically a progression on the Morris Minor platform, but longer/wider/stronger/more powerful to suit the Australian market which preferred bigger cars that were more capable of long distance travelling. The drivetrain consists of the bigger 1622cc (99ci) Morris B series motor, (as later used in the MGA) 4 speed floor shift gearbox with synchros on 2, 3 and 4 and a larger/stronger final drive than the early Majors or Minors. It got delivered today with a little help from someone in the Morris Major owners club: Although it does apparently run and drive, the brakes don't currently work, there is some panel work that needs doing and the drivers side of the front seat has collapsed, also the fuel tank and lines need draining and cleaning and it will need all new tires and secondary light lenses among other things, but it should be a fun little project as everything is so simple and purely mechanical unlike later cars. I will be making some modernisation upgrades along the way, mainly to wiring, but also possibly cooling, tire style/construction, (radials) carburetor/exhaust and lighting. It may be a little while before any big progress happens, I am building a bike for MBBO#06 and I will be walling in part of the carport to make it nicer for the rebuild before it starts, but stay tuned, this should be fun!
