I have got this little project in my shed.  Doing some spanner time on it for him.  Out with the tired 1000 Morris lump & in with a 1600 cross flow ford.  To help it stop we are also fitting disk brakes up front.









Be good

Very cool, I wanted a Morrie delivery van when I was growing up. There was one locally many moons ago running a small block v8.

I suggested a mazda MX5 engine & gear box.  However, my mate is old school & only wanted a little bit more poke, hence the 1600 cross flow. He understands points & carbs.  EFI is black magic to him.
