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. more than 1.6 million were manufactured between 1948 and 1972 in three series: the MM (1948 to 1953), the Series II (1952 to 1956), and the 1000 series (1956 to 1971).

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.

Presented in Blue with a contrasting Green and Brown interior, YKX 844J was first registered on the 25th June 1971, displays 40,760 miles on the odometer and shows 3 former keepers on the V5 Document. The vehicle is believed to be an older restoration, and has recently benefited from a replacement rear carpet. KYX 844J comes accompanied with the luggage set photographed, as well as a small collection of previous MOT Certificates and an MOT Certificate valid until 29 March 2022.
