More than 1. The minor was a relatively roomy car with excellent handling and cornering and within the means of the working man. This iconic British car was manufactured in three series, the original car, the MM, was produced from until as a 2-door saloon, a 2-door convertible and from , as a 4-door saloon.

Old English White with red upholstery and a red soft top. Dating from August , this particular Minor benefits from all the upgrades that were carried out during the long life of the model.

Thanks for any advice on this (I am going to a Morris Minor Club meeting this Thursday and no doubt could get advice there too but thought I.
There is only one other car on British roads today which is as familiar as the Morris Minor, and that’s the Mini. That both were designed by the same man is no coincidence, and indeed Sir Alec Issigonis is one of the very few car designers whose name is recognised by the man or woman in the street and not just by enthusiasts or fellow engineers. The products of Sir Alec’s genius have had a profound and highly beneficial influence on the British motor industry, so it is hardly surprising that it is his first car, the Morris Minor of , which has become the subject of this proposal for a long-life car.
The beginnings of the Morris Minor can be traced back to , with the first prototype appearing in the experimental workshops at Cowley early in by which time it could be determined that the war would eventually be won, and that a new small car for the peace would be needed, to replace the Series E Morris. Its design had been placed in the hands of the young Alec Issigonis by Nuffield Organisation Vice- Chairman Miles Thomas, who had been quick to perceive an exceptional talent.
The car which gradually emerged from Issigonis’s sketch-pad and from engineering drawings prepared by his two right-hand men Jack Daniels and Reg Job, was by the standards of the nineteen-forties unconventional to say the least. Gone were separate running boards and wings, replaced by a highly modern unitary bodyshell which dispensed with a chassis frame and which displayed advanced Transatlantic styling features never seen before on British cars.
Additionally, Issigonis had specified uniquely small wheels for the new car, two or even three inches less in diameter than the average, giving it more of a ‘big-car’ look and doing much to enhance its proportions generally. Underneath the skin, the new Morris was similarly up to the minute. First and foremost, Issigonis sited the engine right over the front wheels instead of well behind them, much investigation and experimentation having proved that the weight of the engine in this position dramatically improved the stability and controllability of a car.
The front wheels themselves were given an advanced torsion-bar independent suspension, which combined with the rigidity of the unitary construction body, gave a standard of ride comfort such as had never been experienced in a small British car before. About the only dated aspect of the Minor when it was announced at the London Motor Show was the engine, a very orthodox cc side-valve unit derived from the Series E Morris Eight and first seen in Issigonis had hoped to use an all-new ‘flat-four’ engine but this didn’t prove practical, within the deadlines and budget set by Morris Motors, for production use.

The Minor was conceived in Although the Nuffield Organization was heavily involved in war work and a governmental ban existed on civilian car production, Morris Motors’ vice chairman, Miles Thomas , wanted to prepare the ground for new products to be launched as soon as the war was over.

The beginnings of the Morris Minor can be traced back to , with the first the Morris Minor has few of the drawbacks of cars dating back to this period.
As an everyday car, the Morris Minor makes sense. Unlike most classic cars, you can keep a Minor running indefinitely. Every component you will ever need is cheap and plentiful. That’s why Minors are still so ubiquitous and possibly – to many enthusiasts who thrive on the battle to keep their cars alive – a bit too predictable. After all, they’re not fast and they’re definitely not sexy. Not everyone was impressed, though – company founder William Morris, by then Lord Nuffield, was appalled at a car resembling, in his own words, “a poached egg”.
However, the sour old duffer had to eat his words when production of the Morris Minor reached one million – the first British car to do so, at which celebratory limited editions were made with lilac paintwork and white seats – in He had the good grace to thank the designer, Alec Issigonis, for creating a motoring institiution, but no inkling Issigonis would trump even the Minor’s popularity with his Mini.
When he envisioned the Minor during the Second World War, Issigonis saw no reason such a small car couldn’t drive and handle well. So he moved the engine for a better centre of gravity, specified rack and pinion steering, and designed torsion bar independent front suspension, which gave the Minor a less jarring ride than rivals. Nuffield’s accountants vetoed his plan for the system at the back – too costly.
So he had to stick with an old-fashioned live axle located by leaf springs with lever-arm dampers. The design was virtually signed-off in , when Issigonis suddenly decided the car was too narrow.
