1968 Morris Minor 1000

A well prepared Minor; driven 30+ miles to the sale; disc brakes; rebuilt engine; very sound bodywork

This nice little Minor comes with plenty of history in the file. A typed list of work and service dates back to 1996 and a significant file of invoices show major attention in 2006. Mid Sussex Minors undertook some quality repairs to the sills and floor and inner wing, details of which are shown in photos. The bill for this (and other) work topped £4,300 and has stood the test of time well.

In 2013 it had a recored radiator and two years later repairs to the boot floor area, cutting out previous work and doing the job properly. A good second hand boot lid was also fitted which was shot blasted and painted light blue to match.

In 2018 the engine was given the full treatment. New std pistons and rings were fitted along with +020" mains and big ends which means the crank was reground too. A duplex timing chain kit was fitted, along with a new B&B clutch, new waterpump, hoses and ignition components. At this time, bills also show numerous trim parts acquired, including front and rear bumper blades, window rubbers and new rear springs.

It comes with current V5c, 21 old MOTs, its last no advisory ticket expriring as recently as last year since when very few miles have been added. Driven some 30 miles to the sale, it has proved an instant starter since arrival and has the addition of a rev counter, ammeter and oil pressure gauge mounted in front of the driver in a very '60s fashion. It has also been upgraded with a front disc brake conversion.

Ready for immediate use, this attractive little Minor presents well, although the paintwork could do with some care and attention due to microblistering, especially to the roof area as photographed.
