The Morris Minor is a British economy family car that made its debut at the Earls Court Motor Show, London, in October 1948. Designed under the leadership of Alec Issigonis, more than 1.6 million were manufactured between 1948 and 1972 in three series: the Series MM (1948 to 1953), the Series II (1952 to 1956), and the 1000 series (1956 to 1971).
Very little is known of the history of the Morris, but car was originally purchased as a restoration project. In the heart of the winelands of Stellenbosch, the car was deregistered and stood for some three years in a shed on the farm. The vehicle then changed hands and was traded to an auto repair shop, here the car was finally given the restoration needed. The vehicle has been mechanically overhauled and there are spare cylinder heads and other bits and pieces. Original positive earth has been altered to negative earth to accommodate an electric fuel pump but otherwise the vehicle is very much original. When fully resprayed great attention went into trying to retain the original blue colour. The interior rear seats have been reupholstered, but the front seats still need some redoing. The back seat folds down increasing the loading area which allows you to have your Sunday drive with enough packing space for your picnic goodies. The vehicle has been relicensed and is currently registered and up to date with all departments.
It is a very nippy little car and will need very minor attention to restore to its former
Interesting trade-in’s will be considered.
