1962 Morris 1000

Highly original car with low mileage; rock solid and recommissioned after a period off road

Joining the family back in 1978, this splendidly original Morris was fastidiously maintained by its principal owner, a garage proprietor by trade.

The car was religiously and thoroughly greased underneath each year, which probably accounts for its solid condition below. It has clearly been loved up top too, with signs of the original paintwork having been polished through over the years.

It has clearly had some paintwork attention, but it has faded gracefully and the interior is beautifully original. The car has been sitting around for a few years, but has been carefully recommissioned for the road, with attention to the brakes etc and given a thorough service.

Driven some 35+miles to the sale, the vendor describes it as running very quietly and smoothly indeed and suspects that the indicated mileage of 61,760 is correct, although there is insufficient paperwork to fully confirm this.

This unmolested little Minor is just how we like them...
