Mor­ris Mi­nor 1000

With Con­vert­ible and Trav­eller Mi­nors be­ing the more ex­pen­sive of the breed, the saloon sits it­self in the more af­ford­able of the range.

You wouldn’t be buy­ing one for its siz­zling per­for­mance nor – de­spite what Mo­tor might have im­plied in pe­riod – physics­de­fy­ing han­dling. No, you buy one to in­dulge in your own slice of mo­tor­ing his­tory. Bask in their charm­ing styling, sim­ple in­te­rior and a flat­u­lent ‘parp’ on the over-run. More than 1.3 mil­lion rolled off the pro­duc­tion line mean­ing there are plenty out there to choose from. Em­i­nently use­able and packed with charm, the Mi­nor 1000 is still a sound buy.
