Current Projects

In order to keep our inventory fresh, Drive Maine always has something new rolling through our doors. Currently we have four project cars undergoing various stages of restoration. We will try to keep this area updated as often as possible, be sure to check out our Facebook page as well for the current happenings in our shop!


Drive Maine was very fortunate to find "Mr. Schmidt in January of 2020. The Morris Minor These pickups are quite rare today, as most led hard working lives in all manner of trade and delivery roles. Fewer than 500 were imported into the US during their near two decade production run, with most of them remaining in the UK.

Onslow was purchased new by Schmidt Motor Company (Austin and MG sales) in Orlando Florida in 1967. Here our little Morris spent the next few years delivering parts for the dealership. He was parked sometime around 1970/71 with only 6990 miles on the clock. It seems that an engine freeze plug dislodged and rather than repair this $3.00 part he was left untouched in the back lot. Apparently during this time there was some strife within the dealership, which eventually dissolved in the late 1970's.

Onslow made his way into private hands after the dealership closed, however he was never put back on the road. In fact when Drive Maine purchased our pint sized pickup, the original Dunlop tires were still fitted, and the freeze plug that put him out of commission still had a hole in it.

Drive Maine is currently preforming a sympathetic restoration on Onslow in keeping with his original role, and to preserve his very unique story. Plan on meeting Onslow spring 2021!

Drive Maine acquired our 1959 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite, Sarah, in September of 2021. Sarah is currently undergoing a complete restoration and will be quite special when completed. We will be uploading pictures of her progress as we move forward getting Sarah back on the road!
