Sleeper(ish) Minor

Words & photos - Daniel Bevis



OK, so Phil Winstanley's Morris isn't exactly a sleeper - there are plenty of clues that all is not as it was when it left the factory.

The attention to detail is impressive too - it may look deliberately rough-and-ready from a distance, but look how much effort's gone into the obsessive weight-saving hole-drilling, how focused the interior is, and how much cash has been thrown under the bonnet. Impressive stuff.
