  • An original Morris Minor Tourer
  • Finished in the classic combination of old English White complemented by a Red interior
  • Offered with V5C

Designed by Alec Issigonis (who later penned the ubiquitous Mini), the Morris Minor was unveiled at the 1948 Earls Court Motor Show. 13 years later it became the first British car to achieve one million sales. The original Minor - or 'poached egg' as Lord Nuffield delightfully called it - initially complete with side-valve engine, was a sedate performer. Equipped with independent front suspension, rack and pinion steering and four-wheel drum brakes, the Morris Minor was practical, economical as well as fun. Convertible (Tourer) models were dropped in June 1969, and saloon production ended in November 1970, but Travellers soldiered on until April 1971.

This 1968 Morris Minor 1000 original Convertible Tourer is finished in an Old English White with a Red vinyl soft-top, It’s an almost iconic colour combination for a Convertible Minor. For the country lanes, a pair of fog lights adorn the front bumper, in case the sun goes down whilst having fun meandering along the English lanes. Passengers are met by a plethora of bright Red vinyl, seats and door cards finished to match, making the interior a pleasant place to be. The passenger even gets a glove box door. Said to be an older restored example wearing its period AA badge, this Minor looks every inch the British icon it has become and is offered with history file and V5C.
