Chopped Minor Coupé

Words & photos - Daniel Bevis

The Morris Minor first popped onto the scene back in 1948, and in all the years since it's proven itself to be a versatile old stick - equally at home at the hands of district nurses, cherry-cheeked young families, racing drivers, and hot rodders. And as you can see here, it's possible to chop them about a bit and turn the sensible saloon into a rakish coupé...
This one was first coupéd back in the eighties by a chap named Jimmy the Fish, and has been doing the rounds on the show scene under various different owners and guises - you see it here in the car park at this year's Goodwood Revival, looking menacing with its fat muscle car wheels and squat stance. You can read all about the build here.

Very nice mod, like the chopped roof.
