1970 Morris Minor 1000 8283 (Not Warranted) £2200 + buyers premium


The vendor purchased this car in October 2010 as a present for his wife. Her first car had been a Morris Minor in a similar colour. The car was purchased unseen as the vendor was abroad at the time and it was delivered to his wife as a surprise.
The previous owners, a solicitor and his wife from the Bristol area, had purchased the car from Charles Ware, the Morris Minor restorer and specialist in the South West.
As things turned out the vehicle was hardly ever used and spent most of the time stored in a barn SORN. The car was MOT’d earlier this year however it remains unused hence the sale. The vendor would estimate the mileage during his wife’s 6 year ownership to be less that 300. The indicated mileage is assumed to be the total since the Charles Ware restoration.

Auctioneers notes: A very tidy 2 door Minor. A great classic to drive and enjoy. Good value.
