‘I found him in a field in Bur­ford’

1978 MGB GT ‘Mor­ris’ Melissa Far­row, Wan­tage

Practical Classics (UK) - - YOUR CARS -

I first got 'Mor­ris' in 2017 from a field in Bur­ford. It had been stood there since 2009 if the last MOT is to be be­lieved. I had never re­stored a car be­fore, but I have had many MG’S. My first car was an MG ZR (called Don­ald). I name all my cars and my in­ter­est in MGS started through watch­ing MG Tro­phy races. I learnt a lot on my MG ZR but an MGB was my first tra­di­tional clas­sic. I am self taught and so far, on Mor­ris, I have welded both sills, around the win­dow, floor and many other parts. The en­gine was solid. When I got him out of the field we put new plugs and fuel in and he fired straight up. Next job is paint, which I plan to do my­self.

Paint job is next for Melissa and her MGB.
