This beautiful Morris Mini Minor is finished in traditional period Smoke Grey and boasts a wonderful deep shine to the quality finish. This example is structurally and cosmetically superb owing to the exceptionally low mileage of 3,473 miles and having been subject to a recent professional refurbishment at a Morris Minor specialist. The chromework to the original bumpers has become slightly thin and light pitting can be seen on the rear light shrouds. All remaining chrome pieces and trim are excellent including the original overriders, unique to the Deluxe model. The glass, rubbers and lenses are all intact and present very well, as do the correct Minor 1000 badges fitted to the boot lid and front wings. A brand new hood in cream with matching tonneau was fitted in 2013 and remains as new. A charming and exceptional example of this quintessentially English countryside tourer.
The original Leathercloth upholstery trim in Blue Grey is a fantastic compliment to the exterior colour scheme and has a lovely sense of basic no frills motoring, long since forgotten in today’s modern equivalents! Incredibly, the factory coverings to the seats and matching door cards are commensurate with the mileage and have been preserved with only very minor age related creasing. A tiny inch long slit to the lower driver’s door card is just visible. The expensive and correct blue replacement carpeting is pristine. The 16½ inch Bakerlite steering wheel with Morris badge is completely intact and shows slight natural aging. The large instrument nacelle housing all the warning lights and gauges functions perfectly as do the pull switches exactly as Morris intended. An iconic motoring delight, perfect for whimsical open top drives.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The water cooled, overhead-valve four-cylinder engine has a cubic capacity of 1098cc and produces 48bhp at 5100rpm. The engine starts instantly at the flick of the key and is whisper quiet. The engine bay is a delight with original plates and badges remaining, and the green A-Series engine block is the correct British Standard (381c) 223 Middle Bronze Green. The 4-speed gearbox with synchromesh on 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears operates well. Thoroughly useable and ready for classic motoring enjoyment!
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Disc-type steel wheels with optional chrome disc embellishers are beautifully painted in correct Old English White. Five radial Firestone F-560 tyres of 145 R14 size are fitted and the spare is housed in the lower boot floor alongside the original red jack and wheel brace. Braking to all four wheels is hydraulically operated by a pendant pedal with front 8in and rear 7in drums, basic but effective.
This wonderful example was registered new on 25th July 1968 as a Morris Minor 1000 Saloon to first owner, Miss Eileen Haydon, who kept the car for a remarkable 44 years until 2012! After only minimal dry usage, the car was garage stored when Miss Haydon ceased driving due to advancing years despite having motability aids fitted whereby it remained for some years, and the read mileage of just 3,473 has been confirmed by the family to be correct. During this time, the garage roof partially collapsed resulting in cosmetic damage to the cars roof. In February 2012, neighbour Mr Al Rodens purchased the car and embarked upon a process on recommissioning the Morris and bringing it into working order. Later that year, the third and last registered owner, Mr Mick Apps, purchased the car and commissioned renowned and established specialists, Charles Ware’s Morris Minor Centre, to professionally convert the car to a convertible. This was undertaken in 2013 with invoices in the history file from them totalling thousands.
Completing the superb history file is an original workshop manual, driver’s handbook and sales brochure. This beautiful car is the epitome of British summer classic motoring and will stand up to scrutiny and delight any traditional classic enthusiast.
