This model Issigonis combines a luxury relative, with the reliability of a car that was placed in the market at an affordable price. It also has good conduction properties, even in the curves. The prototype of the Issigonis Morris Minor was called Mosquito [6]. This series of Minor was the first british model to reach the million units sold and exported to throughout the world in many variations. The internal policies of the BMC, which is the group that owned the trademark Morris, led to a limited expansion of the model in North America. The production started in England in Cowley, and was transferred to Birmingham.

This series of Minor was called an example of "what is English (which in Italian, can be translated into" the representative of the English par excellence ") and the british icon.

The model, with a front engine and rear-wheel drive, it definitely ceased to occur in 1971 and was replaced by Morris in 1100 and Marina Morris. The last Morris Minor, a commercial version, was assembled in Nelson, New Zealand, in 1974.

The engine suffered of infiltration of oil in the dynamo, and then in 1931 was revised. Now the valves were side, and the power was almost the same, that is to say 19 HP at 4,000 rpm. Initially, the two versions of the engines were sold at the same time; until 1932, in fact, the engines of valves at the head were mounted are still in the models with four doors. In the same year, we introduced the hydraulic brakes and the distinguished Child of 'Austin 7, which in its place was installed the brake cable actuated.

The millionth Minor

In February one thousand nine hundred and sixty and a Morris Minor became the first british model to sell more than a million copies. To commemorate the milestone, we prepared a special series of 350 specimens of two ports (one for each distributor british Morris), which are characterized by having the word "Minor 1000000" placed laterally on the hood, in replacement of the word "standard" Minor 1000 ". The minor million was donated nations of the Union of british journalists with the aim of putting it to auction. The proceeds went to a fund for the orphans and widows.

During the period in which they occurred to the model, the sales fell steadily. The last convertible was produced on 18 August 1969 while the last sedan was mounted the following year. The production of the family and the commercial versions ceased in 1971, at least in the Uk, although specimens of all models were available in the showrooms until end of stock. However, the last Morris Minor, a commercial version, was assembled in Nelson, New Zealand, in 1974.
