Gramps has a 1952 Morris Minor project. It's a solid, 2-door... thing. The underside is 100% rebuilt and beautiful, zero rust. He has 100% of the pieces to put it back together, plus many spares. It has a 1000cc+ Austin motor (6.5" clutch), but with a 1bbl downdraft carb, that looks all original (but according to the books, isn't).

It's a little more than Challenge priced, but not by much, and partial trades are looked upon favorably! Titusville, FL.

I swear everybody knows my Grandpa some way, some how. It's kind of uncanny how often he runs into people.

If that weren't in Florida I'd be pitching a fit about having tied up more than my remaining available time an space with the Ranchero...
