need advice

Has anyone installed a MII/Pinto frontend in a Morris Minor.With a car only 60" wide it's hard to find something narrow enough.Maybe someone can send me in the right direction. Thanks.

If you look in NEW INTERIORS photo album you will see a 32 roadster that he built from scratch. He used a stock Pinto front and narrowed the cross member by 4".We used a GEO METRO rack and it worked out fine and drove great.If you need more details I am sure he would be glad to help.

A friend of mine built an Anglia, which is probably even narrower than 60". He contacted Fat Man Fabrications and they custom made an MII from suspension kit for him. Give them, or any of the other custom fabricators a call. Hope this helps.
