1956-1971 MORRIS Minor 1000 specifications


These are the best Minors for those who want one to drive as well as show. The larger A-series engines finally provided power to match the cars’ handling, more so after September 1962 when a 1098cc engine replaced the 948. Larger front brakes were added at the same time. The 1000s are easily distinguished by their curved one-piece windscreen and larger rear window. Convertibles were dropped in June 1969, saloon production ended in November 1970, but Travellers soldiered on until April 1971. Add 50% for Convertible/Traveller prices.
