Car Catcher: A Drop-Top Morris Minor

Sponsored Content Presented by Wire Wheel Classic Sports Cars.

The original Mini may be Alec Issigonis’s most recognizable work, but he was also responsible for the first British car to sell more than one million units: the Morris Minor.

Built over three generations from 1948 through 1971, the Morris Minor was powered by three different four-cylinder engines. The first-generation (MM) cars were powered by a 918cc Morris Sidevalve engine, second-generation (Series II) cars were powered by an 803cc A-series engine, and third-generation cars (1000) were first powered by a 948cc engine but later upgraded to a 1098cc engine.

Originally only available as a two-door sedan and convertible but eventually as a panel van and a pick-up truck.

This 1967 Morris Minor is an example of the convertible variant, powered by the later 1098cc powerplant. According to the listing, the Morris wears an “older restoration done in Ireland,” though still “runs and drives well.”

Finished in an appropriate shade of British racing green over a light green interior, this 1967 Morris Minor is available from Wire Wheel Classic Sports Cars for $7900.
