MORRIS MINOR

Saloon - (1957)

1957 Morris Minor 1000 Saloon in Old English White with red interior.
Dating from February 1957, this two-door saloon hails from the beginning of the series III era and as such, features the proven BMC A-series engine here in 948cc form giving much improved performance over its forebears - considered essential at the time for this was the dawn of motorway travel. It improved top speed from 63 to 75mph and acceleration from a woeful 52-second dash to 60mph to an almost exciting 31 seconds! As a pre-61 model, this example retains its semaphore style trafficators although more modern indicators have been retro-fitted as has electronic ignition and alternator too.
Subject to a recent restoration with photographs on file, it is unclear when this took place, or by whom, as the many photos in the folder are undated, however there are a few hand-written bills for parts suggesting this to have been in early 2020 with one bill suggesting a total spend of £7,106. With bills suggesting £2,000 was spent on the respray, £100 on re-wiring, £750 on reconditioning the engine, £350 on a gearbox recon, £200 on new shocks, £250 on front and rear seats, £180 on new carpets. As seen in the photographs a lot of time and effort has gone into this car and upon test drive she fired into life and performed without fault with a very strong engine and smooth gearbox. If you are looking for a car that is ready to enjoy then this is well worth a look. You will not be disappointed with this wonderful classic and viewing is highly recommended. This is a vehicle that any enthusiast would be very proud to own and would adorn any collection. Now MOT and tax exempt. Absolutely any inspection welcome. Please call us for any more information.
