This was in the days before MOTs and the car had a rotten floor pan, but a previous owner had cut out some quarter steel plate profiled to the shape of the floor and plonked that on top of the original metal. Worked fine, if a little damp on occasions.
In the end I sold the Moggie which had done 90k on the original engine which had been replaced by another which had done 60k. I know this because it had two speedos inside the car. The original in the front bulk head and the 'new' one held in place by a couple of metal strips somewhere down by your left knee.
And I replaced it with a Hillman Limp, sorry Imp, which had its own story to tell.
Ah trafficators, had those on my first ever motor a sit up and beg 1949 ford prefect
A mate had a Hillman limp,enough said about that
