The Minor came in several variants including two and four-door saloons, a wood-framed Traveller estate, a panel van and a pick-up. Most glamorous and sought-after of all was the convertible Tourer model which offered top-down motoring at a budget price. All models were gradually but subtly improved over time, gaining a one-piece windscreen, better heating and an engine that grew from a 27bhp 918cc sidevalve unit to a 1098cc ohv unit that produced 47bhp and could propel the car to a top speed of 77mph.
This bright little Morris Minor Convertible was first registered in July of 1955, an early split-window version of the car. The Morris enjoyed a restoration in 2016 and is now presented in good condition in all respects, finished in black with red wings to the front and rear, and an interior which has been retrimmed in red. Morris Minors are huge fun to own and drive, and we are sure this charming example will bring much enjoyment for its next owner.
