Re: Modern Classic Pocket Rocket
You realise you will need to import a whole new flip front if going for the morris if you cant get an extended one locally. They need to be extended 9cm to make the engine fit. It could be less hassle to start with a leyland mini pano if you dont already have it. I dont think you can make the B16 conversion legally in australia either.
the swift engine may be another alternative.
I have a morris mini in the shed and it is fun to drive but it really is too slow, it has an 1100 engine. If i was made of money I would restore it and get another engine built, my gearbox is screwed and the engine isnt in the best shape at the moment.
They are an expensive car to maintain.
If you go through with it good luck and keep us posted.
