"The car starts easily and drives well. Good engine, transmission, and brakes. The paint is substantially original and would look fantastic after a good polishing and waxing. As illustrated in the photographs, some rust spots can be found with stone chips on the bumpers."

Description

The lady from Österlen in Skåne bought the car in 1956. The original registration papers still exists. She had it until 1986, when she sold it to a man in Sölvesborg. The current owner from Lund purchased the car in 2003, and when he relocated to Dalsland, Ånimskog in 2013, the car came with him. It has always been in the garage and has performed well as a result, as evidenced by the fact that it has traveled only 9000 kilometers.

The outside is complete and charming, there is no serious damage or rust. The inside is also in generally good condition. Green leather seats that require lubrication. The leather on the seat cushions on both the driver's and passengers' sides is slightly worn. According to information, this is because the initial owner's dog was constantly sitting in the passenger seat.

Facts about the model

Morris Minor visades för första gången 1948 – i första varvet med sidventilsmotor och delad framruta. Minor såldes först enbart som täckt tvådörrars samt öppen kaross men från 1950 fanns den även med fyra dörrar.
Konstruktören Alec Issigonis, (mannen bakom Hundkojan), hade börjat arbeta med Morris nya småbil redan under andra världskriget. Hade han fått som han önskat hade bilen fått framhjulsdrift och boxermotor men det föll inte i god jord hos Morris konservativa ledning. Istället plockades drivlinan från föregångaren Eight med en rak 918 cc liten fyrcylindrig motor. Issigonis fick dock igenom sina önskemål om självbärande kaross, kuggstångsstyrning och individuell framvagn.
1952 kom den uppdaterade Serie II med modern toppventilsmotor på 803 cc från Austin A30, 1953 bättrades modellprogrammet på med kombiversionen Traveller och 1954 kom nya grillen och instrumentbrädan. På detta följde sedan flera modelluppdateringar, bland annat med större motorer. Sista Moris Minorn tillverkades så sent som 1971. Idag är de jättepopulära samlarbilar i hela Europa och alla delar finns fortfarande att köpa genom olika engelska företag.

  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends.
