Lot Number: 591
Estimate: £6,000 - 8,000
  • V5 Present
  • MoT Exempt
  • Chassis number: MATSD1146324
This Morris Minor was in the ownership of the same family from 1996 through to 2019. When purchased in 1996, it was in a dilapidated condition; Practical Classics magazine covered its story that same year. The owner had C J Kyte of Shrewsbury undertake an extensive restoration during 1996, after which the car participated in the London to Brighton Classic Car Run the following year.

The Minor's first owner was the Duke of Bedford (of Woburn Abbey), and his ownership details are retained in the history file. The British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate declares the car to have been Old English White with Cherokee red trim when new. The hood is red mohair.

The mileage showing on the odometer is 17,580 and five former registered keepers are recorded on the V5C. The last MoT expired in July 2022, although as an historic vehicle, the Morris no longer requires annual testing.

The history folder includes the V5C, London to Brighton Run photo and entrant letter, Morris Minor Owners' Club appraisal, owner's correspondence, restoration information, MoTs from 1997 to 2020, various tax discs between 1980 and 2013, original sales brochure, a great many receipts and invoices, and various other documents. There is also a February 2022 in‑depth appraisal of the vehicle by Classic Assessments which summarises the Minor's condition as in 'sound, useable and presentable order'.
