Inhaltsangabe: The Morris Minor, designed by Alec Issigonis was an instant hit when it made it debut at the first post war Motor Show held at Earl's Court in London in 1948. The optimism expressed then proved to be well founded as the vehicles went on to enjoy a twenty two year production run and in the process enabled the British Motor Corporation to become the first British motor manufacturer to produce one million units based on the same basic design. The cornerstone of that success was the split windscreen models produced between 1948 and 1956. The first model, the Morris Minor Series MM, was produced in 2 door saloon and Tourer versions. Powered by a 918cc sidevalve engine, it featured many revolutionary features including independent front suspension, rack and pinion steering, 14 inch road wheels and a compact yet distinctive body shape. By 1950 the model range had been increased. A new four door saloon model was introduced. Though initially available only for export, it soon proved popular and by 1951 it was being produced for the home market. With the phasing out of the Series MM models the opportunity was taken in 1953 to expand the model range. In May 1953 Morris Minor light commercial vehicles were introduced. Van and Pick-up models were a welcome addition and proved popular with many commercial operators. With their streamlined looks, low running costs and ease of access, the Morris Minor 5cwt LCV's soon became a familiar sight on British High Streets. Contemporary road tests and motoring reports all attested to the superb design which was considered to be ahead of its time. Today, surviving models, wherever they are in the world, attract considerable attention and evoke memories of a bygone era. Family and business associations are often brought to mind as are fond memories of particular vehicles and even their number plates. Though decades have elapsed since these vehicles rolled off the production line they still have the ability to raise a smile. Hopefully the following pages which catalogue many facts of the Morris Minor Series MM and Series ll Morris Minors manufactured between 1948 and 1956 will do just that. Included are road and used car tests, new model introductions and updates plus full specifications, service data and a model profile together with service data.
