1930 Morris Minor OHC Semi-Sports.
We are pleased to offer this delightful late Vintage sporting Morris which is ‘on the button’ and ready to enjoy.
Now a rare car, with just 16 known survivors of the 744 made (as many have been made into fake M Type MGs), the Semi-Sports Minor is an absolute joy to drive. Not to be confused with later Minors and Eights, this gem of a car features an 847cc overhead camshaft engine, in this case coupled to later four speed gearbox which makes it very usable. The original three speed gearbox comes with the car as a spare.
An older restoration and well maintained since, JN 570 still presents well and is finished in the original colours of black with a red fabric covered tail and matching red ‘Karhyde’ upholstery. The double duck hood is in good condition and is easy to operate. There is a pair of sidescreens also in good order as well as a more recent tonneau cover in vinyl.
The engine starts immediately and emits a healthy bark, quite different from that of the later side valve engines. On the road the chassis feels taught and steers well. The four speed gearbox is undoubtedly a bonus and is easy to use once you remember it’s a ‘crash’ box and can’t be hurried. I’ve driven it a fair bit recently and have enjoyed it a lot. I am informed that a hotter camshaft has been fitted bringing its performance closer to that of an M Type MG.
JN 570 was first registered on 24th October, 1930 to Edmund Barwood of Southend-On-Sea, who was to retain the car until 1963. There is a fascinating file of correspondence between Mr Barwood and more recent owners which show how much he enjoyed the car and how far he travelled in it. There is also a wonderful large photograph of him with the car by Rochford church early on in his ownership.
There is much more in the history file including a Heritage Certificate and the last owner’s detailed log of expenditure and mileage covered.
The OHC Minor enjoys good support from the Pre War Minor Network and this car is well known to them. It would make an excellent introduction to Vintage motoring and VSCC events including those of the Light Car Section.
The valuable registration number is transferable should you so wish.
We are happy to take an interesting vehicle in part exchange.
