This 1959 Morris Minor 1000 is pure classic British motoring fun,
right down to the right-and drive layout. So if you're looking for
one of the most authentic experiences around, dig into the details
on this affordable icon.
The Morris Minor holds a special place in many people's hearts.
This is one that really got the masses moving after WWII. While
many have been upgraded and altered over the years, this example is
for someone who wants a true authentic experience. The consignor
even states the correct Frilford Grey paint is the original factory
application. So while the finish doesn't look brand new, it gets a
ton of respect for carrying over six decades of history affixed to
the curvy fender steel. This really is a time capsule like style
everywhere you look. It's even in the details, like the single fog
light, Morris wheel covers, and subtle red pinstripe. Even the
Trafficators behind the doors are still working, which is always a
fun thing to show off at events.
The hint of red on the outside is also a preview of the full red
interior. Just like the exterior, the most impressive part of this
package is the originality and authenticity. As a true British
machine, this is a right-hand drive vehicle, and the classic Morris
steering wheel with "M" badge in the middle is positively charming.
The shifter four-speed manual transmission is in an ideal spot for
your left hand, and the symmetrical dash has the large Smiths
speedometer at its heart. It's a pure vintage motor experience.
If you know British cars, then you'll love seeing all that green
when you open the hood. That's the unmistakable sign of an A-series
motor. We even have the Heritage Trust certificate stating that
this is the correct original serial number for this 948cc
powerhouse. The engine is a well-known and widely used power plant
that found a home in plenty of British vehicles. It's the backbone
of English motoring, which makes it quite robust and there's easy
parts availability. This is a fantastically original-style
presentation, right down to the Lucas electrics and the generator.
It's those kinds of extra details that make showing off this time
capsule even more fun.
The sale not only comes with the BMIHT certificate, but also
decades of maintenance records showing this original-style machine
also has received quality care. An authentic classic like this has
such a broad appeal, and this one has such an affordable price, so
you know you need to hurry if you want to take it home. Call
