1963 Morris Minor

Finally got to run the v8 Morris minor Here is the brief build summary: She started as a 1963 Morris minor that had a rotary in it when I found her but the rotary was locked up. So I pulled the drivetrain. I removed the tired suspension and rotted unibody which left me needing to reinforce the chassis to support the v8 conversion. To do so we put her on an s10 chassis that we shortened by 4 feet roughly. I found a core chevy 350 and rebuilt it with parts from my friends corvette motor that had spun a rod bearing. The trans was sitting in a garage of someone who was moving so I got it cheap. The rear axel I traded for and it was from an Oldsmobile bravado. The body we chopped the top in the front and raked it. Put a roll cage in and rebuilt the floor around the drivetrain. The interior is just the basic gauges and a seat.
