*Ever-popular model
*803cc overhead-valve engine
*Vendor-scored as 'very good' throughout


Arguably the fondest-regarded of Britain's post-war saloons, the Alec Issigonis-designed Morris Minor was launched at the 1948 Motor Show and by 1961 had achieved its millionth sale. A Series II model equipped with the 803cc overhead-valve engine, this Minor four-door saloon is vendor-scored as very good in every respect. Purchased by the deceased in October 2019 from Sherwood Restorations, Nottingham. The previous owner kept the Morris for some 40 years, and commissioned a restoration in the 1980s, and then resprayed again in 2002. During that time only some 3,000 miles were covered. Many bills on file for its maintenance over the years, a really honest car in lovely condition. Running and driving very nicely. The car is offered with V5C document.
