1959 Morris Minor 1000 series 3 factory Tourer.

Finished in the rare and very distinctive colour Frilford Grey.
The colour was only available to order from January ‘59 to July ‘60 - not so common on its passenger range as they chose to market their Commercial range in the same colour.

It features red leather seat facings (possibly original) which are ‘well weathered’ and a red hood which is quite tatty and would ideally need replacing.

The car has been subjected to a good quality restoration in 2001, with a very solid underside with only surface rust present through lack of use and not always dry stored.

I will now list a full and accurate appraisal of the car.

• The hood as described above is tatty and the frame could do with a tidy up.
• The seats, although comfortable have seen better days.
• The boot lid base is perforated.
• The rear wings are tatty and lightly perforated in a few places but could be sympathetically repaired.
• The rear bumper chrome has seen better days and could benefit from refreshing.
• The brakes will need an overhaul.
• The engine is fine, it has run but the fuel is stale, and needs attending to.
• The carpets have recently been replaced along with decent quality wool underlay.
• The paintwork has micro-blistering all over but retains a reasonably decent lustre – you could say it has character.
• The floor pans were stripped down, epoxy primed and painted in enamel – prior to the carpet replacement.
• The wheels have been refinished in the correct colour – Pearl Grey.
• The sill trims have both been replaced.
• Full tool set and hood cover present.

The car represents a great opportunity to buy a correct MAT chassis numbered factory convertible which hasn’t been subjected to historic poor-quality repairs and requiring sympathetic restoration but not a drastic one.

It can be improved in stages and enjoyed in the meantime once the relatively easy mechanical elements are rectified.

I am based near Winchester in Hampshire.
