Morris Minor

Morris Minor

The Morris Minor, Britain's dearly loved small car, had a production span of 23 years. Revolutionary when it came out, thanks to the independent torsion bar front suspension and spacious interior, it became the cheap practical motor for thousands of families and remains a popular car in the UK today. This example was built from one of the Traveller woody-type two-door estates and has kept a very stock look, though cleverly it has a 2-inch (50mm) roof chop and widened rear arches to house the bigger tyres needed. Under the hood, where there used to be a 50ci (830cc) four-cylinder, there's now a supercharged 241ci (3.9-liter) Rover all-aluminium V8, which can get the car down the quarter-mile in under 14 seconds. Inside, the car is very stock too, featuring a full original interior with just the enlarged transmission tunnel giving evidence of any change.
