MOR­RIS MI­NOR

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Market Movers 2017 -

PRICE RANGE £650-12,000

It’s a climb from num­ber ten to num­ber six for the dear old Mog­gie. The mar­ket’s still pretty friendly to­wards these charm­ing Bri­tish sa­loons, es­tates and con­vert­ibles. And let’s not for­get the vans and pick-ups, which con­tinue to make strong money when they cross the block.

Sa­loons make up most of the cars of­fered and later mod­els are eas­ily ev­ery­day driv­ers – ear­lier cars lack the per­for­mance needed in mod­ern traf­fic, but they still make great, us­able clas­sics. Trav­ellers add more much boot space and the con­vert­ible (be­ware sa­loon-based con­ver­sions) of­fers four-seater drop-top mo­tor­ing.

Plenty of spares and de­light­fully easy to work on, the Mi­nor ab­so­lutely de­serves its rise up the rank­ings.
