MARK James teaches Light Vehicle Mechanics at Charles Darwin University, and he brought his crazy 1963 Morris 1100 down from Darwin to Red CentreNATS. Hanging out at the CDU stand, the car copped plenty of attention over the weekend, it certainly made me do a double take the first time I saw it!
“I was originally looking to do a Roth-inspired, V8 VW, but finding an affordable car was difficult,” Mark said. “Then I started thinking about the Morris and how most people have some kind of connection to them. So I found a complete, stock car and got it shipped to Darwin. The truck driver took the running gear and we went from there.”
We caught up with Mark at Red CentreNATS to figure out what on Earth possessed him to build the car the way he did.
