1962 Morris Minor 1000

Restored in 1990 and only around 11k miles since; current lady owner 13 years and kept in a nice warm garage during this time; very tidy all round

This Morris Minor two-door was bought new from Hills of Tredegar in June 1962 and remained in the first owner’s family until 1994. It then had three further keepers until our vendor acquired it in 2009.

In late 1990 it was restored by St Woolos Auto Repair Service of Newport, Gwent, at a cost of £3,500, the work being detailed in an invoice on file (bodywork, paintwork, brightwork, carpets etc). In 1994 at c.80k miles it appears to have had a new head set, timing chain kit and exhaust valves. Other invoices attest to routine upkeep over the following years.

17 old MOTs show that the car has always been in light regular use, covering some 10k miles since 1994, the odometer currently showing just under 90k miles which is said to be correct. In the 13 years that our vendor has owned the car it has always been kept garaged and well-looked-after, proving very reliable and covering nearly 7k miles during this period.

The bodywork appears to be in very good shape, both above and below, and the paintwork is still nice and shiny. The interior is also in good shape apart from the front seat squabs which both show signs of wear, as shown in the photos.

Starting promptly and running sweetly as we have moved it around on site, it has two sets of keys and no doubt has many more years of faithful service ahead of it.
