This book charts in detail the restoration of a very special Morris Minor to the highest possible standard. However, it does much, much more than that.
It details the trials, tribulations, traumas and triumphs of a father and son working together towards a common goal. What is all the more remarkable is the fact that they undertake the restoration of a much loved British car in a remote location in the Australian Bush.
Richard and Bill McKellar are not professional restorers. However, they are most definitely enthusiastic and dedicated Morris Minor devotees. Bill is a retired Bank Manager and Richard is Creative Director in his own Graphic Design and Advertising Company based in Melbourne. Nevertheless, through sheer hard work and dedication they have overseen the transformation of what Richard engagingly describes as a 'bitser' car, to one that would grace any Concours d'Elegance competition.
This book is an invaluable guide to the practical aspects of completing the many detailed and often complicated tasks which the home based restorer inevitably has to grapple with.
Richard and Bill would be thrilled to bits if, through their efforts in completing the restoration and charting their progress, they encouraged other like minded enthusiasts to complete the restoration of their own Morris Minor wherever they are in the, world.
With this publication at their side they will be better placed to do so.
