Debuting alongside Jaguar's superbly glamorous XK120 at the 1948 London Motor Show, the Morris Minor was somewhat overshadowed. An exceptionally advanced design, the Minor was the brainchild of Sir Alec Issigonis. With a monocoque chassis, independent torsion-bar front suspension, all-round hydraulic drum brakes and rack and pinion steering the model possessed excellent handling but lacked the horsepower to exploit it. However, things improved markedly when the four-cylinder 1098cc OHV A-series equipped Series V was introduced in 1962. With up to 45bhp and 60lbft of torque being transmitted to its rear wheels via a four-speed manual gearbox, the Series V was reputedly capable of 77mph.
In the 1920s, commanding a 41 per cent market share, Morris Motors of Cowley were the UK's number one car maker. One of the most enduring of our postwar classics has been the Alec Issigonis engineered Morris Minor. The great man's basic concept and straightforward technical layout was spot-on, Minors not only being an economic proposition for the Morris bean counters to sanction their manufacturer, but also because private punters could afford to buy and run them in very large numbers over many years with relatively easy to achieve upgrades.
