There were three main model periods spanning nearly 25 years. The Series MM, produced between 1948 and 1952,was powered by the same side-valve engine as seen in our pre-war Morris Eight. The Series 2 gained the overhead valve engine of the Austin A30 in 1953 after the merger with Morris creating the British Motor Corporation, but still retained the flat-glass split windscreen of the previous model.
This left-hand-drive convertible is an unusual variant with the old side-valve engine, but the newly styled body. Although all models have their enthusiasts, it would be reasonable to suggest the Minor 1000s are the most popular, although the early side-valve models have collector appeal.View Morris collection »
