Mas­sive Mi­nor cel­e­bra­tion

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - Nick Larkin

Prepa­ra­tions have started to mark 70 years of the Mor­ris Mi­nor in 2018. ‘This will be some­thing re­ally big and re­ally spe­cial, but it’s early days as far as mak­ing plans is con­cerned,’ says Mor­ris Mi­nor Own­ers’ Club (MMOC) sec­re­tary, Ray Newell. ‘We will stage a ma­jor rally and a road run, but wel­come any ideas from Mi­nor en­thu­si­asts.’

The Mor­ris Mi­nor Registry North Amer­ica will also be cel­e­brat­ing the event in a big way, li­ais­ing with the MMOC and or­gan­is­ing a tour of the UK for its mem­bers.

The Mor­ris Mi­nor made its de­but at the Earls Court Mo­tor Show on 20 Septem­ber 1948, with more than 1.3 mil­lion pro­duced be­fore pro­duc­tion ended in 1971.
