The unofficial AR site has a forum that may be able to help.

The Morris Minor Owners Club with definitely be able to help. I would have thought the owners' clubs would be the first port of call. They're usually only too willing to help.

As they are all mostly BMC* the museum at gaydon should be your source of info.

*Whats the vauxhall velox doing in there? That came in rust red only.
