    Some of you my already know the new addition to my mini family. Allen S has owned it for several years, and it was on display IN a Tacoma showroom for awhile after he imported it. I chose this car to replace Berry after it's untimely demise, and brought it home Tues. night.

    I've named him Ted, I'll explain later.
    Ted is a '61 Austin Seven De-Luxe. Build date 15-Sept 61 and dispatched to a dealer in Bristol on the 20th.

    He still retains it original color (Old English White) and trim color (Gray Fleck and Tartan Red)

    He was updated / molested with sport steering wheel and shift knob (for sale, see forum) late model front sub-frame with 1275 A+ motor, 8.4 brakes and 12" wheels. The plan for the future is to return to 10" wheels with S brakes, replace the MKIII speedo for an early style, and fabricate a new exhaust system. I had a MKI steering wheel and shift knob that I installed last night, and will be out in the garage in a few minutes to work on an exhaust system.

            Wow! Sweet ride! How did they mount the two bolt subframe up to the early 4 bolt bulk head? I want to see this little sweetheart; are you coming to the food drive?
