The Morris Minor 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 and, indeed, the 1,000,000 example was sold by Historics in 2015. 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. Other changes included a modified dashboard layout with toggle switches, textured steel instrument binnacle and larger convex glove box covers. A different heater completed the interior upgrade whilst the larger, more modern combined front side/indicator light units, common to many BMC vehicles of the time, were fitted to the front wings.
This is a charming example of an early split-screen Morris Minor, these are now a rare sight to see on British roads. This is a charming little car that is sure to bring a smile to a new owner and it is presented in green with red trim. This is an older restoration but still in good condition today. Offered to auction at no reserve.
