Delightful Morris Minor Factory Convertible 1958
Like the mini I think everyone has a soft spot for the Morris Minor, it evolved from a time when things were made simply and with a couple of spanner’s under your seat you could fix almost anything yourself.
This truly delightful little convertible has been with the last owner for 31 years so you can imagine how attached the family were towards the car ‘this was their pet in the garage’
In the year 2000 she was subject to a complete body restoration by specialist (photos on file) this included new chassis cross member, inner sills , steel wings and bare metal repaint. With all this work completed a chance donor car was acquired with the later 1098cc engine and gearbox and this was installed just to give the car a little more turn of speed. Naturally other items received similar attention like brakes and suspension to keep and maintain the car in good fettle.
Finished in old English white the red upholstery is original and in very good condition just slightly faded on the front seats if you want to be picky - carpets have been renewed and a new red soft top was only fitted a couple of years ago. The chrome on the car is in fine order and she sits on radial tyres all round. Interestingly the weekend before we were due to collect the car the owner took her to one last show and won a prize in his class, a very fitting end I’m sure you would all agree. I had the pleasure of driving this one home and can confirm she ran like a swiss watch. Car comes with various invoices,restoration photos, owners handbook and very nice registration number. Will be fully serviced prior to new owner taking delivery. DEBIT/ Credit / Cards Taken. (Delivery Service Available)
