This 1968 Morris Minor 1000 has been upgraded with front disc brakes, a rev counter and additional dials. The car is described by the vendor as a good all round example that drives well. There is a good history file that includes old service and MOT details, although it is now registered as a historic vehicle, and there is an original workshop manual.

In 2006, East Sussex Minors carried out major bodywork repairs including a replacement floor, flitch panels, outer panels, and spring hangers. A new brake system was also fitted. The bill came to more than £4,300, and the repairs seem to have stood the test of time well. In 2016, the boot floor was replaced and in 2018 the engine was rebuild with new oversize bearings, new pistons, a new clutch, trunnion and water pump. The cost of the parts was £1,330. The car has been driven on a number of lengthy runs over the past couple of months, including from Surrey to the Cotswolds, and to the sea in Sussex without any problem. The paintwork looks fine at first glance, however it is patchy in places and shows some signs of micro blistering. A great little starter classic for a new collector.
