Rarely are genuine Vintage Minors offered for sale and we are privileged to offer this delightful and very usable example which has had but owner for the last fifty years.
The car has been quite recently rebuilt by its last owner and the rebuild included extensive work on the engine.
The seats have been reupholstered and the double duck hood and side screens are new.
A new wiring loom has been fitted as well as a new 6 volt battery and four new tyres on refurbished wheels.
The Wolseley derived ohc engine starts instantly and emits the distinctive ‘Cammy’ Minor exhaust note. On the road the Minor has a very lively performance for a small car and reassuringly good steering. The three speed ‘crash’ gearbox is a delight to use and the brakes pull the car up square.
A large history file accompanies the car and includes a buff log book dating from 1969, manuals, parts book and invoices.
The ‘Cammy’ Minor enjoys good support from the Pre War Minor Network and Vintage Minor Register. It would make an excellent introduction to Vintage motoring and being a nickel radiator car has the added bonus of being eligible for VSCC Light Car Section events.
