THE MORRIS MINOR

Arguably the fondest-regarded of all Britain's post-war saloons, the Alec Issigonis-designed Morris Minor was launched at the 1948 Motor Show and by January 1961 had sold one million units to become the UK's most successful post-war car to date. The first new 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 initially by the company's existing 918cc sidevalve four, the Minor received an 803cc overhead-valve engine in 1953. A pair of two-door models was offered initially: a saloon and a convertible.

Exports to the United States began in 1949, which required raising the headlamps from their position in the grille in order to meet local codes. This change was soon adopted across the board. Initially the line included both two- and four-door saloons, and a jaunty little tourer which commanded about a third of the market. In 1956 the Minor 1000 with 948cc A-Series engine appeared, and the model received a further capacity boost (to 1,098cc) in 1962. Despite the many mechanical and styling changes, the final Minor remained recognizably the same as the 1948 original. By the time production ceased in 1971, more than 1.5 million of all types had been sold.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This charming Morris Minor 1000 has been restored to a high standard and is finished in a lovely combination of white over red interior. The previous owner of this Morris Minor made the restoration of this car his personal project of passion, spending years going through every component of the car and bringing it back to showroom condition. The only deviation from original specification for this Morris is an updated 12v electrical system.

The Morris is great fun to drive, never failing to attract a crowd. As an eye-catching support vehicle at historic race meetings, or even a potential entry at various car shows and Concours d'Elegance events, this Morris Minor 1000 finds enjoyability for any automotive enthusiast.
