Morris Minor History in a Nutshell

The Morris Minor, designed by Sir Alec Issigonis (who later went on to design the Mini), debuted at the Earls Court Motor Show in London on September 20th, 1948. Over its total production run, more than 1.3 million were manufactured between 1948 and 1971. Sir Alec's design concept was to combine the luxury and convenience of a good motor car at a price affordable by the working classes, and as a result the Morris Minor was a very common family car in the 50s and 60s in the UK. The Minor was a roomy vehicle with superior cornering and handling characteristics for its time. While it's 0-60 mph time was a sedate 30 seconds, it sipped petrol at an impressive 40 mpg (imperial).

Initially available as a 2-door saloon and tourer (convertible), the range was subsequently expanded to include a 4-door saloon in 1950, and in 1952 a wood-framed estate (the Traveller), panel van and pick-up truck variants. The Minor was manufactured in three series, Series I (1948), Series II (1952) and finally the 1000 series (1956). More than 1.3 million of the lightweight, rear-wheel drive cars were eventually produced between 1948 and 1971, mainly in Cowley, Oxfordshire, and exported around the world, with many variants of the original model. Production continued in Birmingham, England until 1971 (for the commercial variants and estate only). The last Morris Minor (commercial) was assembled at Stoke, Nelson, New Zealand in 1974.
