DESCRIPTION

Everyone loves a Moggie...This, well-preserved, 1951, 918cc side-valve Morris Minor was the subject of a full nut and bolt, engine out rebuild in around 2009 to include body and mechanicals. Since that time, the car has travelled a mere 1,343 miles and so and is barely 'run in'.

It's finished in a very smart, period correct, green and the interior has been delightfully and accurately restored in a light cream with the seats piped in a complementing green. The wheels are also finished in cream and the car is set off by a set of 'pencil-whitewall' tyres, which were the height of fashion in the early fifties.

The car comes with a buff log book relating to its previous registration number (OOP 575) and has only had two former keepers. There are also some old MOTs dating back to 1973 with the car.

The most valuable Minors are the earliest Series MM cars, the so-called 'low-light' examples, complete with headlights mounted in the grille, and they have been known to sell for more than £10,000 in perfect condition. However, they are closely followed by the early fifties, split windscreens Minors which have more charm, are more sought after, and considerably rarer than the later cars.
