Sedan
Chassis #: M/AT3L 717264
Sold for $16,500 at 2015 Bonhams Amelia Island Auction.
The Alec Issigonis-designed Morris Minor was introduced in 1948 and was the company's first new post-war design. It had a unitary construction, a torsion bar independent front suspension, a four-speed synchromesh gearbox, and a rack-and-pinion steering system. Initially, power was from the company's 918cc side-valve four-cylinder unit. In 1953, the Minor received an 803 over-head valve powerplant. A 948cc A-Series engine was installed in 1956, which grew to 1098cc in 1962.

Initially, the Morris Minor was offered as a two-door model in saloon and convertible configuration. In 1950, a four-door saloon appeared, followed by estates and commercials later.

Production continued until 1971, with more than 1.5 million Minors of all types sold.

This particular example is a Minor 1000 Drophead Tourer that has been comprehensively restored. It is finished in a red exterior with a tan convertible top. The interior is red with wood accents, and there is a wood rimmed steering wheel and gear knob.

Power is from a 948cc overhead valve four-cylinder unit fitted with 2 SU carburetors and offering 37 horsepower. There is a four-speed manual transmission and four-wheel drum brakes.
