Genuine factory built Tourer; recently restored with many new parts
and a full repaint; later 1,098cc unleaded engine; transferable number; a smart
example of Britain's cutest convertible!
First registered in Surrey in November 1959, this Morris Minor Series III is a genuine factory made Tourer (hence the M-AT chassis prefix).
From 2016 – 2020 it was owned by one of the mechanics who worked for Riley specialist Keith Pointing. He spent over three years restoring the car, invoices on file for parts alone amounting to some £6,200, the parts being mainly supplied by ESM Morris Minors. These included new seat foams and covers, new carpets, new hood, new bumpers, new brakes, new tyres plus a host of other trim and mechanical parts. It was also treated to a bare metal repaint in black.
Our vendor acquired the Minor in 2020 to join a collection of cars and has continued to look after it well, including a full service, rear brake overhaul and a new electronic fuel pump. He reports that it runs and drives nicely, an invoice on file showing that it was fitted with a fully rebuilt 1,098cc engine and an unleaded head in 2004. He also reports that the semaphore indicators work as they should and now also flash (rather than just illuminate) as an additional safety feature.
In 2021 the Moggie took part in The Classic Motor Hub ‘Drive It Day Treasure Hunt’, a day-long navigation rally around the Cotswolds, emerging victorious against some far more exotic machinery. The winner’s trophy and the rosette are included with the car, as is a copy of Ray Newell’s definitive book on the Morris Minor and several copies of the Morris Minor Owners Club magazine.
Starting promptly and running sweetly as we have moved it around on site, this is a most attractive Tourer all round. The icing on the cake is the original 671 MPB number plate which is transferable and doubtless has a value of its own.
