1967 Morris Minor 1000

Only 7,000 miles since full restoration; recently recommisioned following 10 years in storage; new tyres, battery, brakes etc; very tidy indeed

First registered in June 1967, this lovely Morris Minor Two-Door was fully restored in the early 1990s including a rebuilt engine, alternator conversion and a retrimmed interior with black leather seat covers and inertia reel seatbelts.

Although there are no invoices for the work carried out, a detailed AA Vehicle Inspection Report dated November 1994 states that: “It is clear that the car has been painstakingly restored to a very high standard and is now in many ways as good as new”. The mileage at that point was 35,100 (which was said to be correct) and while 28 years and 7,000 miles later we wouldn’t quite go that far, it is still a very pretty car.

Our vendor acquired the car in July 2021 at which point it had been in storage for 10 years so a thorough recommissioning was carried out. This included the following new parts: brake shoes; brake cylinders; Borg & Beck brake master cylinder; hand brake cables; radiator; indicator flasher unit; electric windscreen washer kit; battery; new set of tyres plus a full service.

Starting promptly and running sweetly as we have moved it around on site, it has an MOT until March 2023 with no advisories recorded. An original owner’s handbook and a period BMC accessories brochure are also present along with 8 old MOTs and invoices for the recent recommissioning.

A very pleasing car all round, it is only reluctantly for sale due to an impending house move and consequent loss of storage.
