Morris Minor 1000 Convertible 1969 (G) Maroon
The Morris Minor was launched at the 1948 Earl’s Court Motor Show and while Alec Issigonis was rightly praised for this new ‘modern’ car, the name revived that carried by a vehicle dating back to 1928, while the idea of an open top tourer was also a homage to the pre-war Morris Eight tradition.
This stunning example registered KPR 911G was manufactured and first registered in February 1969 and was one of the last batch of Morris Minor Convertibles built before production ceased in June 1969.
In early 2005 it was the subject of a 'nut and bolt' rebuild by Morris Minor specialist Charles Ware in Bath for a Mr Mike Barr in Ayrshire at a cost of £12,500 and there are full details of this restoration in the history file.
The restoration included a full overhaul of the body shell including anti-rust treatment with Tectyl injected into the body, 4 new wings, rebuilt doors, boot lid and bonnet.
The original 1098cc Engine was replaced with a fully reconditioned 1300cc Morris Marina Engine and the 4 speed Gearbox was replaced with a 5 Speed Ford Sierra unit along with a new Clutch. The interior was completely replaced with Series III front seats with headrests and trimmed in half-hide Biscuit leather, + new Beige carpets, front and rear inertia seat belts and and a new Everflex Beige hood.
In addition, the car has a wooden Mota-Lita Steering Wheel, Servo assisted Brakes, Suspension upgrades, Halogen Headlamps, Alternator conversion, Electronic ignition, new wiring loom, upgraded Heater and a Kenwood Stereo/CD player hidden inside the glovebox.
This car is in truly exceptional condition throughout and drives beautifully and has only covered 5,000 miles since rebuild in 2005.
The car has been HPI checked and is clear on all registers and upon sale it will be given a new MOT and pre-sales service and come with our own 6 month Mechanical Warranty which can be upgraded at additional cost if required.
