Morris Eight Bodywork
Thursday, November 22, 2012 at 05:15PM

At a recent classic car show in Birmingham I chatted with a retired gentleman who is restoring a Morris Eight from 1935. The bodywork consists of an Ash structure with a steel skin formed around it and pinned into place. (Apologies for the photograph quality). A laborious high skilled process, luckily the gentleman had an advantage over fellow enthusiasts having served his time as a cabinet maker and wood turner.

An interesting method of fabrication I will be keeping in mind for alternative applications.
