Sir Alec Issigonis' concept was to combine the luxury and convenience of a good motor car at a price affordable by the working classes. The Minor was a roomy vehicle with superior cornering and handling characteristics. More than 1.3 million of the lightweight, rear-wheel drive cars were eventually produced, mainly in Cowley, Oxfordshire, becoming Britain's first car to sell a million units with export around the world. Production continued in Birmingham until 1972.

This Morris Minor two-door Saloon is described as being in good condition throughout. Reported by the vendor to be in good running order and a joy to drive. The car is finished in the classic colour combination of black with a red interior. This Morris Minor is supplied with a V5C registration document and a service history. A classic example of this iconic piece of British Motoring history that is ready to be enjoyed by a new owner.
