The pre-war Minor was launched to compete with the Austin Seven and was assembled at Morris's Cowley plant from 1929 until 1934, at which time it was replaced by the Morris Eight. The newcomer was ultimately offered in seven guises - five on the standard short wheelbase chassis (6ft 6in) and two on an extended platform (7ft 7in). Two engine types were employed. The earlier and more technically advanced 847cc OHC unit was fitted to all examples made up to January 1931, at which point an equivalent capacity 19bhp side-valve unit was introduced to power a £100 Minor and a range of other economy models. A three-speed gearbox was employed until 1933. Suspension was by semi-elliptic leaf springs front and rear and braking by cable-operated drums all round. The model's most successful year was 1932, during which no less than 19,248 of the total 86,318 were built. Even then, the Minor was still outsold by the ubiquitous Austin Seven, production of which continued in one form or another until 1939.

Manufactured in 1934 and supplied to the United Kingdom being registered new on the 1st of February that year, the Minor offered is finished in Green paintwork with Black wings, a complementary Green interior upholstery (in notably good condition), and a Black hood, as well as the side-screens. A side-valve engine example with two-seater Open Tourer coachwork, the Morris is understood to have been in the current deceased ownership for approximately half a century and has been residing in dry storage for the majority of that period (an estimated 45 years). Offered now following the passing of the vendor, the Morris was recently unearthed from its storage location and was brought into a running and driving condition, notably running sweetly during our photography session and showing good oil pressure. Still requiring further recommissioning before pressing into use, this charming Minor Tourer will prove a rewarding project and is offered with the buff logbook and an MOT certificate from 1974.
