Massive Minor celebration
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.
