He has also restored a 1969 Traveller and 1960 Convertible, fitting each of these with a number of upgrades to make them more capable on the roads of today.

Press Reviews

Well-illustrated throughout with high-quality and helpful photos, this book is useful - invaluable almost - for those wanting to mildly tweak their Minor through to owners considering something far more radial

- Richard Gunn, Classic Car Weekly

It will become a handy ‘go-to book’ if you want to upgrade or modify your Minor, I am sure of that.

- Russ Harvey, Heritage Commercials Magazine

Is it worth the cover price? Absolutely! I’d say that for those who aren’t concerned by 100% originality and want to use a Minor as an everyday car or give it a slightly sporty makeover it is worth buying. For those who are new to Morris Minors I’d say this book is essential not least because it answers
questions about alternators, radial tyres, poly-bushes and E10 petrol.
