Let’s get our Austin Morris Mini running right

Take a look at this little firecracker! Owner Ross has brought his wonderful Austin morris in to see Ady, our engine specialist.

Ross noticed the car wasn’t running quite right as the air/fuel mixture looked to be running a touch rich. Ady has diagnosed the issue as a faulty choke. The choke cable wasn’t correctly fitted, causing the choke to always be around 1/4 on. This was what was causing the car to run rich.

Brought into us this morning, the car is already back on the road and running like a dream! Amazing work, Ady. Ross is now off to Goodwood Festival Of Speed, have a great time!!

A Mini and Merc Maybe

This charming little Mini may be coming in soon to be recommissioned and assessed. Currently we’re at the enquiry stage but hope to see this little red motor come in soon!

And we have our 300 SL Mercedes with the usual bulkhead corrosion concerns. This could be another exciting project to come into our workshops in the coming months.

Green With Envy

Our fabulous 1961 Morris Mini Deluxe has had her engine recently resprayed in this delightful earthy green.

With us for a full restoration, our cherry red Mini arrived with us as little more than a rusty shell. So far we’ve restored her body and given her a full paint job. We’ve completely transformed her interior, including newly upholstered seats. Meanwhile, we also recommissioned her engine before it was painted.

Our Morris Mini is a really early example of this car, we plan to restore her back to her original form as closely as possible.

We love Mini’s here at Bridge classic cars. So much so, that we’ve had three Mini’s appear in our classic car competitions. Currently, we have a bright yellow 1991 Austin Mini up for grabs for just £7. Head to our competitions page to find out more and to purchase your tickets.

A not-so-Mini Job!

Ady, our engine specialist, has completed an entire engine rebuild on our fabulous 1961 Morris Mini Deluxe.

“She’s literally had everything done” Ady explains. “Including new pistons, new bearings, a new gasket, an unleaded cylinder head fitted and a reconditioned gearbox.”

Now all the technical work on the engine is done, it’s time to get it into the paint shop to make it look pretty! A gorgeous green is the chosen colour, we can’t wait to see it finished.

Our Morris Mini is being kept as close to it’s original state as possible. Another Mini of ours is currently with Electric Classic Cars where’s it’s undergoing a full electric conversion. Check out the latest news on this project here.
