MORRIS IS SOLD WITHOUT WARRENTY

 

Do notice my beautiful 1971 smoke gray Traveler. My good friend Jeremy Gibbs found this car in Whales, took a five hour train trip and drove it back so that it would be ready when we arrived in London. If you would like to see a collection of photos of our 3000 mile trip through England, France, and Scotland, go to Photo Gallery and click on "European Delivery". A plug for Jeremy: He's a renown film editor now working on "Enemy at The Gates" in Germany. 

 

 

 
Reunited after 17 years, I first purchased this 1951 split window in 1983. The car was completely original with only 75,000 miles on it. I bought it from an architect who was the second owner, and it was the last item to be settled in the divorce. Anyway, I cosmetically restored it but none of the parts were available for the series 2 Morris Minor, and the wheels kept falling off. I traded it to a fellow enthusiast for a Morris van. After the wheels fell off a couple more times, he sold it to a would-be restorer. Fifteen years later I found it completely taken apart, and in several boxes. It's almost finished in black, and leather seats. I want to thank the MM Parts Company for supplying me with a series 2 top frame, and convertible top. 

 

 

I first built a truck like this in 1994 (see photo gallery under "Gone but not forgotten"), and sold it to a German actress who begged to own it. She turned around a year later and sold it for a profit. A year after that, it sold at the Pebble Beach Concourse for twice what I sold it for. I missed it so much I am building another one (picture to the left). Notice on the red one that the top folds back into the bed, or can be completely removed and left at home. More on this as work progresses.

 

Waiting for screenplays to sell is like watching the hands of the clock move. So Dolph'n Productions has embarked on the hand crafting of a 42 inch baby tender. Wooden air looms are all custom made for clients in the film industry. If you can put it on paper we can probably build it for you as witnessed by the Morris Minor Limo below.

 

This Swedish sloop is made of red African Mahogany over oak ribs. My father bought this boat out of the crate in 1960. Guess what the name is..."The Dolph'n". It is named after Rudolph, Randolph, Brandolph, my mother Buddy ann, and my sister Pandora Ru ann. Thus the Dolph's and the Nn's. It is 28 feet long with teak decks. Remember "The Way We Were"?... It is all bright varnish with over 90 hand carved dolphins along with three Julian Ritter oil paintings. 

 

This incredible 34 inch stretch landaulet is a combination of the efforts of many skilled and talented people, including Sean Crayford Jr. of Crayford Coachworks (structural design), Albert at Imperial Auto body (fabrication), British European of San Pedro (drive train) and Absolute upholstery of Marina Del Rey (custom convertible top). All supervised and assembled by Dolph'n productions.

                           

BOY NOT INCLUDED! This pair of ancient iron has been seen in many magazines, and movies around the world. A 1953 Austin A40 Devon panel van and a matching J40 Austin pedal car. The little one fits inside the big one. And you can drive the big one anywhere! 

 

New Owner:  Larry Mastropolo, NJ

This 1960 turquoise Morris Minor Traveler was given a ground up restoration starting January 1998. It has all new wood plus side wood and a beautiful wooden interior done in a marine fashion with leather seats and lots and lots of varnish. The drive train is a 1275 rib case transmission, 390 rear end, built by Mincom Racing. Wire wheels/disc brakes by Borroni and paint by Imperial Auto Body.
