A genuine low owner 1967 Morris Minor 1000 De-Luxe Tourer back for sale by ourselves for the second time around. Have no doubt that this Tourer is a factory supplied example - not a car that has been subjected to a conversion !
We have known this car throughout its complete restoration being previously restored by a family friend with lots of knowledge about Morris Minors. The restoration was undertaken over a number of years with very keen attention to detail. The car has been dry stored throughout its restoration and to the present day.
The car, presented in its factory Trafalgar Blue with Pearl Grey hood is a delight to see on the road and an even better experience behind the wheel. The bodywork is very good all round and the recently refurbished steel white wheels, matching white coachline and grill, along with the restored chrome trim and bumpers together complete the look of this spectacular little car. The car is rust free and was sealed underneath by us prior to its previous sale. In our opinion, there is no work to be completed by its next custodian.
The interior of the car has had a complete retrim with exterior matched paint in the necessary places, blue/grey seats and all recent carpets along with a set of blue Morris Minor Owners Club floor mats. To the previous owners’ requirements, we also added a 12 volt and USB socket, an alternator conversion along with a new electronic ignition system. The hood folds up and down without any difficulties enabling the owner to use the car in our Great British weather conditions without any worry.
Mechanically the car is sound with a valid MOT until January 2024. Prior to its last sale, we fitted a number of modifications and upgrades to the car including a new SU electronic fuel pump, Accuspark electronic ignition and alternator along with a new Lucas Classic battery.
The 1098cc A-series engine runs without fault and starts first turn of the key. The 4-speed transmission is reactive and gear changes are smooth. Overall, the ride is very enjoyable, we have road tested the car on several occasions and have had no issues, just satisfaction. We have had many Morris Minors in and out of our doors and this car is one of the best we have seen.
The car will be supplied with a fresh 12-month MOT, a service, heritage certificate and some previous paperwork. If this beautiful open tourer looks and sounds like the car for you, a trip to see us is well worth the visit – “Our coffee pot is always hot”.
