Not a Midget or Sprite, but I know this car and so do some of you

I have had my hands on this car, in Paul A’s shop.
Years ago when Paul 'retired' and sold his Morris Services business I had the opportunity to tag along with a few other LBC enthusiasts to help “bag and tag” the parts and pieces of all the cars and parts of cars he had in that shop and the several other buildings. I came very close to buying another of Paul’s Morris Minors (not a Million car) and kick myself regularly for passing on it, but I drove it out to Richland and delivered it to it's current owner.
I have often wondered what became of this “Million” car and am so glad to see it was restored so brilliantly.

The way it was when I saw it, also - I own that red sandblaster now, it's in my shed!

Rick, that is very cool!! I've never owned a Minor but have always liked them.

That is really awesome! ( a far overused word, but justified in this case!)

My very first car in '69 was a '61 MM 1000, grey, red interior. Radiator leaked, worn-out clutch, no rust, one small dent- $60. My introduction to auto repairs. A wonderful car. The turn signal stalk had a green light at its tip that when blinking lit up the interior at night; my friends never tired of laughing at it.
