Info

Dubbed “The worlds supreme smallest car” by its maker, the round look Minor, designed by Alec Issigonis, attracted considerable attention in America from the start. Both a two door sedan and a similarly styled convertible were introduced and as early as noted, there was no price penalty on convertibles. Special features included uni-body construction with turret-top (sedan) roof and a one piece floor pressing, rack and pinion steering, a semi floating hypoid rear axle, and vernier trimmed torsion bars for the front suspension to deliver a “Lull-above” ride.

The Morris Minor convertible is a desirable collector car.
