1956 Morris Minor Series 2 Saloon
Reg. no. RVS 460
Chassis no. Unknown
Engine no. 320132
Launched in 1948, the Morris Minor was to become, along with the Mini, its later stablemate also from the hand of designer Alec Issigonis, the archetypal mid-century British motor car. Over a million were sold in its 23 years of production. The Minor changed little over this time, but the main change – and a very important one it was to – was the replacement in 1952 of the pre-war-designed 918cc sidevalve engine with the 803cc A-Series unit from Morris\' new partner in BMC, Austin. This gave the new Series II improved performance and a much livelier driving experience.
This Series II 4-door saloon is in good condition; owned by the vendor for ten years, it has been gradually restored over that time, except for the bodywork and paint which had been done to a good standard before. Remaining mechanically original, with the 803cc engine still in place, it is said to run and drive very well. It comes with bills and a V5c.
