    morris 8 ratrod

    ok where do i start....i posted a wanted ad on this site a while back looking for a british tin body, fozwanger got in touch saying he knew of a morris 8 been left in a barn for 32 years, so a couple of phone calls and emails and the car was ready for collection after we dug it out of the barn.

    its had two owners from new and was taken off the road in 1966 and has been parked since (i even found service books stamped from 1948 to 1962)

    the car is actually very solid and complete and has a wicked patina

    Will you leave the chassis as is but strengthend? Flathead V8? What about channelling with a raked chop?
    I'm green thats a nice find, well done
    I'd luv you if you were the colour of a baboons arse....................
