Classic Car Auctions says:

This striking Morris Minor Convertible has been familiar sight at many classic car shows around the country over the years. Following on from an extensive (and expensive-14K) restoration in the early 90s and an engine rebuild 5 years ago, EFB 778E has been subtly upgraded to make it a more usable car in modern traffic and a bit more noticeable. The Minor now sports a Charles Ware handling kit with disc brakes and servo, Rostyle wheels, electronic distributor, Newton Commercial upgraded interior and a new Mohair hood. Finished in Smoke Grey, this immaculate Minor is a real head-turner and would engender real pride of ownership.
