Num­ber 8

New Zealand Classic Car - - Price On -

This 1936 Mor­ris 8 is cur­rently un­der­go­ing the fin­ish­ing touches as part of a com­plete ground-up restora­tion.

Matt and his team at Cus­tom Paint and Restora­tions in Sil­verdale re­ceived this clas­sic as a bare shell and boxes and boxes of parts, plus count­less nuts and bolts that were not la­belled, bagged, or tagged in any way, just chucked in a box and handed over.

Matt was given the task of not only try­ing to sort out what goes where but also fully re­build­ing the car from the ground up. Ev­ery­thing apart from the electrics has been han­dled by the team, in­clud­ing all the in­te­rior wood­work and up­hol­stery, fabri­ca­tion, body­work, paint, and re­assem­bly.

Ev­ery­thing on this car has been re­built, re­placed, or re­stored to an ex­act­ing stan­dard, so it is sure to pro­vide the lucky owner with many years of clas­sic mo­tor­ing.
