Almost from the day it went on sale until the Series V was released in late 1962, constant improvements were created for these popular vehicles. The most common variety were the sedans in two and four door form, followed by the Traveler station wagon. Among the rarest by production to be produced, was the Minor convertible. This was the first car that Sir Alec Issigonis would create in a long-line of successful creations. By British standards it was as every bit a modern car as those coming from the USA, fenders that were part of the body, no running boards, yet a secure passenger cabin that could accommodate a driver and three passengers in relative comfort. The Car – This example of the Morris Minor 1000, Series V convertible is a splendid vehicle for the discerning collector who wants unique looks, light maintenance, and dependable service, but who isn’t worried about a concours ready vehicle that can only be looked and at and rarely enjoyed. We understand the engine is a proper Morris unit, but not original to the car, as is the charming color scheme of pale yellow with red vinyl seats accented by a tan canvas folding top. All of the components are original to the Series V edition and the chrome trim presents very well. We are told this car runs and drives as new and can maintain modern highway speeds delivering both safe and dependable transportation. Riding on 14” wheels, the braking is simple and sure and shifting gears requires only the lightest of touch. Indeed, a fun car for ferrying passengers or enjoying a day at the races with the top down. 1967 Morris Minor 1000 Series V Convertible Designer: Alec Issigonis Chassis Number: MAT5DL1174559 Decoded: M=Morris; A=A-Series engine; T=Touring Convertible; 5=1098cc 4-cyl.
