1956 Morris Minor 1000 saloon
 
Item: 4781 - 1:12 scale 

The Morris Minor made its debut at the first post-war Motor Show at Earls Court, London in 1948. Designed by Alec Isogonics, who later designed the original Mini, the 1948 Morris Minor had a split windscreen, low level headlights and a "new" monologue construction. 

176,002 units were manufactured until it was replaced in 1953 by the Series II which went on to sell 269,838 units before the introduction in 1956 of Morris Minor 1000. 

Available in Saloon, Toured (convertible) and Traveler (estate) versions, the Morris Minor became the first British car to sell a million units in 1961 when a Limited Edition model was launched to mark the event. 

In total, over 1.6 million units were made before its demise in 1971.

1963 MORRIS MINOR 1000 SALOON
Item: 4784
Color: Rose Taupe

Limited Edition 800pcs
In September 1962, the final chapter of the Morris Minor began. Following rationalisation within BMC, the 948cc engine was replaced by the 1098cc A-series engine, which was used on the Austin A40 and the Austin Healey Sprite. A new style of air filter was also fitted to replace the old AC oil-bath air filter. Further improvements were then made in the following October when the windscreen washer system was redesigned and the old assymetric wipers were lengthened and repositioned to work in tandem/parallel. New combined indicator and side lights using both amber and clear lenses were fitted to the front wings, whilst at the rear, a new light cluster incorporating the amber indicator, red reflector and brake light was added. On the speedometer, the indicator warning light was discontinued and a green intermittent light was added to the end indicator control stalk. 
Our model reflects all of these changes and is presented as a late 1963 model in Rose Taupe (GR27) with a red coachline and a Tartan Red/Silver Beige interior
