The original Morris Minor arrived in 1928, in direct competition with the phenomenon that was the Austin Seven. The model was equipped with cable brakes, a three speed gearbox and an 847cc, over-head camshaft engine, based on a design by Wolseley, which in 1932 was replaced with a side-valve unit for the final year of the Minor’s production. The petite motor car had a 48” wheelbase chassis and initially had just two body styles – a two door saloon and a four-seat tourer, but during its production up to twelve were offered, including the arrival of a van in 1930.

Proving its reliability, this 1932 Saloon recently completed the 2017 Daffodil Run successfully. No problems arose from the trip of around ninety miles, and indeed, the Minor has been a regular entrant in road runs and rallies in the not so distant past. The sound little motor car has been the subject of a repaint at some point and we are informed that it remains in lovely condition, with a very good interior and mechanics that have no known faults. With just five owners throughout its eighty-five year existence, the summer-ready Morris is equipped with a sunroof in working order, adding to the versatile motor car’s many charms.

The file contains some images of the repaint as well as road rally outings, history of the Morris and the V5C registration certificate.
