Not arguing with what you have seen TW but the XK150 was not originally available in cream although earlier models were. It could have been factory Old English White which looks to many people very similar to cream or of course the owner could have had it resprayed in XK140 cream. :geek:

May well have been Old English White, only drove past it and looked a creamy white.

Saw this Morris Minor with modified rear end, didn't get to see the rest of it.
The diff, the rear suspension and wideness of rear tyres looked interesting.

Not really, it is a 1968 car and is exempt from the MOT if the owner desires. If my TR7 was exempt I might only do it every other year (I think its worth a proper check) as it does less than 1000 mile a year.

Its MOT exempt therefore it is not required to undergo an MOT test, it does however still need to be roadworthy.

I was in the back of the car with my Son and asked my Mum to take the picture, then I cropped the picture to remove all the wasted space round the outside.
I said you fools on here have a thread going :lol:

Surprised it got an MOT with the wheels outside the body like that, maybe dispensations for sparky cars.
