Our Parts Department was established in 1976 to provide spares for customers and just as importantly, our workshops. When we choose the spare parts that we keep in stock we only take those items that our workforce use. If there is a problem of quality, dimension or fit our mechanics and restorers are the first to complain and our stores have to find a new supplier or complain to the current supplier that the spares are not up to standard. In this way we guarantee that our stock of parts is of the highest quality that can be found.
The advantage of using our Parts Department is that the staff behind the desk have also worked in our workshops. This means that they have experience of how the spares are fitted and the related parts needed for any job. Their knowledge of different models (whether the MM, SeriesII or the 1000) and the years that changes were made, can save a lot of problems as very few Morris Minors are totally original and many have quirks depending on their year. This can be a potential area of confusion for customers and restorers as what appears to be the right part may turn out to belong to a different version of the car.
