The pic is from the early 90's, so there probably weren't many about back then. Looking at the differences in the front and rear tyre sizes, I doubt the hydrolastics would have liked it very much.
There have been a few "Funnies" over the years - the LOCI National Rally at South Cerney in 2004 saw a slammed hearse turn up, with the bonnet having a Morris Minor dome section added to it and the ubiquitous Buick V8 under the bonnet, RWD of course. The standard of workmanship was superb; the results were just weird!
Well done Richard another "new" one for the list. :

I saw the Morris 1800 that was (and is still shown) for sale in Moffat on the LOCI site. It is safe and in very good hands, now down here in Surrey. It is being restored at present, new owner hopes to have it back on the road later this year. www.landcrab.net/assets/images/photos/sold/m1800_1/01big.jpg
There is an Austin 2200 parked in the corner of a yard on the Lychgate Industrial Estate just before the A130 slip road on the A127 in Rayleigh, Essex. Looks complete, but has obviously been there for a long, long time.
