We have a rare treat coming into us here at Bridge Classic Cars very soon. This lovely little 1971 Morris Traveller 1000.
This piece of British motoring nostalgia is coming in to be assessed by our in-house restoration team to see what this wonderful little car will need to be in tip-top condition.
Expect to see more on this fantastic 1971 Morris Traveller 1000 at Bridge Classic Cars in Suffolk, UK soon on our News Page.
We may be expecting both of these beautiful Morris’s into the workshop sometime in the near future. The photos below are a 1935 Morris 12/4 Coupe 1500cc and 1949 Morris Minor Lowlight. Morris’s are known for their iconic British charm and trustworthy engineering.
Final high build primer has been applied to the doors and bonnet of the 1963 Morris Minor by our paint-shop-pro Chris. “All they need now is a final rub down ready to be painted,” he explains.
The side panels have also been prepped and shaped with filler, ready for their polyester primer.
Inside the car, polyester sealant has been used along all the welded joints. This section will be ready for painting very soon too.
This project is coming along quite nicely, we’re looking forward to seeing the finished paint job in the coming weeks, coupled with the next stage of the restoration- the trim shop.
Pictured below is our Morris Minor 1000 having it’s engine removed by Pete. The engine will be fully recommissioned including a new water pump and fresh paint.
Dave, one of Bridge Classic Cars’ vehicle technicians has been hard at work on the restoration of this Morris Minor 1000. He has Removed the worn brake pedal. The pedal currently has a lot of play in it which will need addressing.
Dave has welded in two steel plates into the chassis and repositioned two captive nuts inside of the chassis box. He’s also repaired the end of the mounting brackets.
The brake master cylinder has now also been removed. We will check the seals and refurbish it to full working order.
The next stages will be to weld all the floors and panels that are corroded and re-align panels that have flexed with age.
