1952-1956 MORRIS Minor Series II specifications


Still with the charm of a split windscreen, but now powered by the A-series engine from Austin’s A30. This engine only appeared in four-door models during 1952, but all models received it from February ‘53. Later that year the wood-framed Traveller is added to the range. From late ‘54 there’s a new face with five horizontal grille slats, plus a new dashboard. Many of these cars have been fitted with the stronger 948cc engine from a later Minor. This has no detrimental affect on their value. Add 75% for Convertible and Traveller prices.
