Morris Minor Insurance

The Morris Minor is often associated with the Mini, as both of them were created by Sir Alec Issigonis. The origin of the car can be traced back to 1942, with the first prototype appearing in workshops at Cowley. From there, the car went through a number of changes, including a name change from Mosquito to Minor after WW2.

The original Minor MM was produced in 1948 and ushered in a new generation of small car. With its quick and easy steering, car enthusiasts discovered it was a joy to drive. The Minor continued to be updated through the Series II, Minor 1000 and ADO59 models.

Despite the decline of production in 1971, Morris Minors remain a popular car. They are reliable family-sized vehicles that have earned their place in automotive history.

Which one?

Minor 1000s are popular choices, with a large one-piece windscreen and 948cc engine. ADO59's are the most updated version, as the engine has a 30% increase of power.

Side-valve Minors are rare and driving them can be hard, due to the lack of power in the engine. They can also present an exciting challenge for anyone interested in restoring a classic model, especially when looking for parts.

Morris Minor Travellers have a classy look. Their timber frame means you'll have to look out for any sign of rot.

Morris Convertibles are sporty vehicles that started out as two-door saloons. Although properly converted cars are safe, others can be dangerous. Always be aware of what you're buying to avoid getting an unsafe model.

Buying And Owning A Morris Minor

Compared to other cars, Morris Minors are usually more affordable. Whether you're looking at purchasing a 1000 or Convertible, you'll need to carry out a thorough check. No matter the model, it's important to look at the underside because it can rot badly along with the sills and door bottoms.

The bodyshell of a Minor is the most appealing quality. However, corrosion can start from the inside and should be managed accordingly. Corrosion can also occur on the outside, so it's essential to look at areas like the boot lid and doors. It's recommended that you consult with a mechanical expert so you have peace of mind knowing that everything is fine with your Morris Minor..

Due to small engine sizes, Morris Minors aren't the fastest cars on the road. But they are practical and can be driven at your leisure.
