Lot 111: Morris Minor 1000

HISTORIC COLLECTORS MOTORCARS, Coys (29 June 2013)

Sir Alec Issogonis's Morris Minor was launched to the unsuspecting British public at the first post-war Motor Show in 1948. Issigonis had produced this motoring icon, the other being of course the Mini. These cars were almost the English 'Beetle', a typical people's car. They provided utilitarian transport for a great cross section of society, from school teachers to police officers, their enduring popularity with the British motorist has earned them a place in the hearts of many people. Infact, it is their rugged durability and practicality that has seen them continue to be popular and in recent years a number of specialist companies have provided completely re- built cars for the growing demand. This is such a car, rebuilt by marque specialists Morris Minor Centre in Bath to exacting standards and is described as being in as new condition. Finished in Old English white with a contrasting red interior the car has been sensibly upgraded with a five speed gearbox and servo assisted brakes. Fitted with a concealed stereo and 12 volt socket for pleasurable driving, it is a super example of an endearing and practical British classic.
