The Morris Minor was a British economy car that debuted at the Earls Court Motor Show on 20th September, 1948. Designed under the leadership of Alec Issigonis, over 1.3 million examples were manufactured from 1948-1971. Initially available as a two door saloon and convertible, the range was subsequently expanded to include a four door saloon in 1950 and wood-framed estate, The Traveller, plus the panel van and pick-up truck variants in 1952.

The Convertible model offered for sale has been stored for some 40 years and whilst requiring restoration, is completely original. The odometer reading of 32,000 miles is thought to be correct, but cannot be warranted. The 918cc engine is in place and the vehicle does appear to be complete. Originally registered on 18th July 1952, this 60 year old iconic convertible is in need of a new home and looking for someone to restore it to its former glory.
