Brian "Golly" Godber's Mopar engined Moggy -"Havoc".
The reason I bought a Morris Minor van Smiley
A classic 70s survivor. Still wearing it's original paint, applied in 1976! I've always loved this van. Even when I used to see it on the streets of Battersea at the Chelsea Cruise back in the late 70s, it stood out as utterly bonkers.
Amazingly, after spending many years in storage in an underground carpark in London, & a spell of living in Florida when Brian emigrated there, it's still 90% original & looking great. Brian unfortunately died a few years ago & Havoc now belongs to a guy in Hertfordshire, who has it listed as his company van.
I'd love to see it up close again.

Same as you Andy,I remember it well from The Chelsea Cruise.I liked the way he put the two porthole windows in because the the seat was mounted so far back that he needed them to see the road as he pulled out of junctions.

There's a red model A pick-up about that was rodded in the States in the 60s. The paint's crazed & chunks of it have peeled, but the owner's got no intention of repairing it & wiping out it's history. It's a fine line between cool patina & just tatty & rusty Smiley
