MORRIS MINOR AA 1973 BREAKDOWN RECOVERY VEICLE For Sale
INFO & HISTORY
During the 1960s the AA's motorcycle combinations were phased out in favour of vans, mostly Minivans, although other types were also used, including a fleet of around 100 Minor vans bought between 1968 and 1970.
The British Motor Corporation (BMC), owners of Austin and Morris amongst others, decided in 1967 that the Morris Minor van should also be available as an Austin.
For reasons now lost the AA favoured the Austin version, which apart from the badges, radiator grille and engine colour was identical to the Morris.
AA Minors were fitted with the optional alternator instead of the standard dynamo to make sure they were able to cope with the extra electrical demands from the front spotlights, roof sign, flashing light and two-way radio.When first discovered, this vehicle was in poor condition, and painted dark green.
Many people were involved in the Minor's restoration which was completed in 2004.
Much of the work was done by former AA patrol Geoff Townsend, a Morris Minor enthusiast, from Bromsgrove in Worcestershire.
This is a fabulous original car, a genuine Lowlight with just 60,800 miles recorded, with its past owner for over 30 years, still in its original colour and retaining its original upholstery and registration.....
