Footnotes

  • Arguably the fondest-regarded of Britain's post-war saloons, the Alec Issigonis-designed Morris Minor was launched at the 1948 Motor Show. By 1961 the Minor had achieved its millionth sale, and would continue in production for a further ten years. The first post-war Morris design, the unitary construction Minor boasted torsion bar independent front suspension, rack-and-pinion steering and a four-speed synchromesh gearbox. Powered at first by the company's existing 918cc sidevalve four, the Minor received an 803cc overhead-valve engine in 1953. Two two-door models were offered initially: a saloon and a convertible. A four-door saloon appeared in 1950, with estates and commercials following later. In 1956 the 'Minor 1000' with 948cc A-Series engine appeared, and the model received a further capacity boost (to 1,098cc) in 1962. In 1967 the British Motor Corporation decided that the Minor van should also be available as an Austin, which was identical to its Morris sibling apart from the badges, radiator grille and engine colour, though within a few years all the Corporation's commercial vehicles would be badged 'BMC'.

    This very late Morris Minor van benefits from a re-trimmed interior and is described as in generally good order and driving reliably. Finished in blue with black interior, the vehicle is offered with current road fund licence, MoT to July 2014 and Swansea V5 document. The provision of servo assistance for the brakes is the only notified deviation from factory specification.
