Sir,

We have long watched the spread of conversion kits and all forms of extra equipment for mass-produced motor cars, and wished that we could think of something that would not only bring us our share of all the spare cash being spent, but would really help motorists in addition. At last we have come up with an idea that will not only make our fortunes but will fill a real need for one section of the motoring fraternity, namely Riley Elf and Wolseley Hornet owners. In addition to vastly improving the appearance of these cars, our invention reduces the overall length, thus cutting down shipping costs and also making parking easier. All we do is to cut off the rear of the car and replace it with a standard Mini-Minor boot. We have fixed the conversion price provisionally at £70. At a later date, we intend to market a conversion for the Mini-Minor giving greatly increased boot space; we shall do this by welding on unwanted Riley Elf or Wolsely Hornet boots.

Other projects include drum brake conversions to improve the braking on Mini-Coopers, and wire door-pulls for this model to facilitate door opening.

For Ford owners we shall offer 1,340-c.c. engine conversions to give the Classic 1500 greater economy, seat conversions to make the Capri into a genuine 2-seater, and a rear parcel shelf for the Ford Anglia or Classic (the space for this being obtained by moving the rear window to a position between the front and rear seats).

KEITH HIGGINS and MICHAEL BELGROVE.

Kenilworth.
