MORRIS MINOR Convertible Split Screen Side-Valve 1951

vehicle overview

Very rare 1951 split screen side-valve Morris Minor Convertible. This is a genuine Minor MM Convertible with a 918cc side-valve engine. Originally supplied to Sri Lanka the car was the property of Mr Winch who has remained the owner of this car until now. Morris Black coachwork with a Fawn hood and Red upholstery. The seats have been upgraded to larger cushions for comfort purposes but all seats and door cards are trimmed the same. There is a large portfolio of history for the car both in Sri Lanka and when it returned to the UK. The car underwent a restoration in 2003 and was then returned to England where it was re-registered and MOT'd and had a mechanical overhaul and was used lightly for two years before being put into storage in 2005. Recently exhumed and recommissioned it is now ready to be enjoyed again. It runs and drives very nicely with excellent oil pressure and the 78,000 miles displayed is believed correct. She starts on the button and I'm sure that this is a car that any collector or enthusiast would be please to own. Now MOT and Tax exempt and a super registration plate. This car is just waiting to be enjoyed in new hands. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. Viewing is highly recommended and we know you won't be disappointed. She is not a show car but very presentable and extremely solid with no rust or rot. All major debit and credit cards accepted. Please contact us for any further information. Delivery can be arranged.
