At a Glance:
|1954||Morris||Minor Series ii||37,000 (Warranted)||£3294 + buyers premium|
Black, with red interior, and a sticker under the bonnet which says ‘Standard Spec’. It’s pretty much as original, except for consumables such as tyres (very low mileage Toyo radials) and exhaust. There is no evidence of rust, either in the chassis or the bodywork, except for some light surface rust due, we suspect, to the car having been off the road in dry store for the last 5 years. The paintwork is in pretty good condition with a good sheen and patina, albeit with a various ‘touched in’ chips. The interior is in excellent condition, with the exception of one surface fault on the squab of the drivers seat; the boot is generally clean and tidy, with an unused spare wheel. There is a small period tool kit, complete with a starting handle! The engine bay is a bit grimy with a little evidence of coolant having sprayed out when a top hose split. A small amount of engine oil has leaked from the rocker cover. The fuel pump, Dynamo and Control box were replaced when it was last on the (road for my daughters wedding in 2010). There is evidence that the speedometer was replaced at about 29000 m which would make the total about 37000m which the vendor has warranted.
Auctioneers notes: Where can you find a 2 owner split screen which has such lovely patina?
