1959 Morris Minor 1000

The Morris debuted in 1948 as a two-door sedan and open touring variations. The Traveller - a light duty station wagon - arrived in October 1953.

Total production for 1959 Morris Minor was 105,759 of which 17,483 were Travellers. The 1000 Series denotes its 948 cc four-cylinder engine, Rack and Pinion steering and 4-speed transmission.

This car sat outdoors for 19 years, after brake failure and an unfortunate contact with a tree. The tires actually sunk into the pavement where it sat. The current owners bought the car for a parts car, but decided to restore it instead. The car is an AACA Senior Grand National Award winner and received the 1998 AACA National Award - S.F.Edge Trophy.
