Noted the numbers from this at Trav60.

Original engine nos too.

As well as your cars numbers, would owners inform me of any unique feature if
the car - something very difficult to change, a dent/extra holes in the dash/ radio
ariel etc.

Thanks
Further investigations uncovered it was an inside job!!

More info: the bonnet crossbar has recently been welded so there are weld burns to either sides of the bonnet, covered in grey primer.

If anyone sees this car please contact owner Neil on 07870 759426

Further distinguishing features:

A noticeable dent to the passenger side rear wing.
Torn hood side strips.
Metal studs on dash and inner door rims for fitting of tonneau.
Radio aerial on driver's side front wing. ( original Radiomobile radio fitted on passenger side )
Metal ring soldered on 2/3 of the way up the gear lever to ensure tight fit of hand brake/gear lever lock.

Ideally we need some device that stops the vehicle from moving - wheel
clamp, chain it to a tree/lamp-post/another car?

A steel plate covering the existing door lock and a padlock around the
door handle, anyone on here able to make one?

Together with removal of the interior door handle, quite
a challenge for the theif!

I don't think we are talking about the sharpest tools in the box here.

No broke both large side windows - all they needed was to get under the hood as it wasn't a very tight fit. Think it must have been opportunist joyriders, but the car still hasn't been found. I don't think it would have been stolen for "parts" as it needed a new hood welding, and a spruce up itself.

I've just received this from the owner:
I am delighted to report that our Morris Minor Convertible DPU 660G,stolen two weeks ago,was spotted this afternoon having been abandoned by the thieves in Erdington.Sadly, she has been stripped of her interior,hood,and other parts but not the engine.We have yet to see her as she has been recovered by the police for scientific examination.Can you please update the website accordingly.We will report further once more is known.We suspect the thieves were frightened off by a story printed in the Birmingham Mail last Friday which highlighted Bunty's plight and may have made her too hot to handle

Excellent that its been recovered, shame about the missing parts, but they can be replaced.
