Another classic vehicle today…

Over 1,300,000 Morris Minors were produced between 1948 and 1971, and this one was first registered in April 1970 in Taunton, Somerset.

Although still badged as a ‘Minor 1000’ the ‘Moggie’ (as they are affectionately known by many) had been built with a 1098cc version of the legendary A-series four cylinder engine since 1962… it’s an engine I’m very familiar with, having driven a Mini Clubman for a number of years (in my distant youth).
