New neighbour across the channel
- Nov 13, 2020 - 11:33
Hy all,


I guess it's my turn to introduce myself.
I leave in Northen of France so please excuse by advance my so bad English especially in term of mechanical vocabulary (but i try to improve...)


i'm the owner of a 1953 Minerva since now a few years.


This car is not 100% guenuine not fully complete but free of rust (which is a pretty good base to start).


For the time being i'm busy to renew the gearbox and the transfert box.


As a conclusion i would say i'm pleased to join you
6 Thanks.

A Minerva that is free of rust is a very rare thing.  :smiley: Nowadays Minervas are considered to be Series 1s and we are always happy to welcome another Minerva owner on here.  The gearbox and transfer are standard Land Rover parts, so I'm sure if you have any problems that someone on this side of the Channel will be happy to help you out. Once things return to normal there'll hopefully be plenty of meetings in France or the UK to share.
