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 Minor was manufactured in three series; Series I, Series II (1952) and finally the 1000 series such as the car offered today. These 1000 series cars benefitted from an engine which was increased in capacity to 948cc and are differentiated from earlier examples of the marque by their curved one-piece windscreen replacing the two-piece split windscreen and an enlarged rear window. Other modifications specific to this car are a new dashboard layout including a lidded glove box on both the driver and passenger side of the dashboard.

Originally registered on 9th August 1960 this delightful Morris Minor has been owned by the vendor since February 2018. Having been well cared for and dry stored, this tourer presents in good condition all-round, although to be expected of a 64 year old vehicle, there are some age related marks. The engine started on the button during our visit and we are advised this Morris drives with no known faults. Simplicity is a word to describe a Morris Minor, they are remarkably uncomplicated yet extremely reliable. The tourer is an instantly recognisable, quintessentially British part of motoring history. Supplied with a V5 registration document, together with an MoT test certificate valid until 16th April 2025 and a number of invoices. This genuine Morris Minor Convertible is offered for sale without reserve. Consigned by Stewart Banks.
