Vehicle Description

1959 Morris Minor 1000 Convertible This car has unibody construction, front torsion bars, rack and pinion steering, a wheelbase of 86" and a length of 148". It weighs 1475 lbs. A 948 cc, 37 hp, 4-cylinder overhead-valve engine and 4-speed gearbox drive the rear wheels. Top speed is 72 mph. In 1910, bicycle manufacturer William Morris, founded the Morris Motor Company and, in 1913, produced his first car, a Morris Oxford, at the factory in Cowley, Oxford, England. By 1924, Morris had become the largest automobile manufacturer in Britain. (That same year, Cecil Kimberly began building sport cars based on the Morris, and named them "MG" after his sales agency, Morris Garages). The first Morris Minors were made from 1928 to 1934. In 1938, William Morris, now Viscount Nuffield, merged Morris Motor Company with MG and Riley to form the Nuffield Organization. In 1948, a completely new Morris Minor appeared, the work of a team led by Alec Issigonis, who later designed the famous Mini. In 1952, the Nuffield Organization merged with Austin to form the British Motor Corporation. Between 1948 and 1971, 1.62 million Morris Minors were produced as 2 and 4 door sedans, convertibles, station wagons, pickup trucks, and commercial and postal vans. This example has enjoyed a professional nut and bolt restoration ...the car is close to 'new car ' condition. No expense spared cosmetically or mechanically. Everything is operating as it should, wipers, lights, horn, heater, even the radio is in working order. Check out the 'trafficator' turn signal alarms both left and right sides. The brakes have been upgraded to front disc with drilled and slotted rotors. Just a pleasure to look at, this thing couldn't be cuter and fun to drive! Original owners manual is included as well as the original Morris warranty document indicating it was sold here in the states by Nick Graffeo Motors in Birmingham, Alabama
