Classic Motor Show Restored 1960 Morris Mini
All the celebrations for Mini's 50th anniversary have gone to the head of the organisers of the Classic Motor Show, held at Birmingham's NEC from 13th to 15th November 2009. They are giving the fantastic 1960 Morris Mini restored at last year's show away in a text-to-win competition. For just 50p plus your standard network charge, you can enter to win a classic Mini of your own.
‘Mo' as the red Morris Mini has been nicknamed, was restored to its former glory live on stage at the 2008 Classic Motor Show by Edd China from TV's Wheeler Dealers programme. Edd gave the classic red Mini the TLC it needed after five owners and 56,600 miles on the clock, ironing out any niggles and replacing worn parts with new ones such as a carburettor and chrome fittings including early bumpers with over riders, glass indicator lenses, headlight bezels as well as a new windscreen.
Once all the mechanical work was finished, the expert team from Meguiar's gave ‘Mo' a full detailing using the full range of their world class car care products, leaving him looking as good, if not better, than new! They also left a gift pack of Meguiar's products in the back, for the lucky winner.
Between now and the 2009 Classic Motor Show, ‘Mo' will be out and about at other events such as Beaulieu, Goodwood Revival and the International Mini Meeting later in the year, giving you plenty of opportunities to see ‘Mo' and enter for your chance to win. ‘Mo' will be presented to one lucky winner at this year's spectacular event held from 13th to 15th November at Birmingham's NEC.
