1957 Morris Minor 1000 Saloon
This well presented and excellent driving Morris Minor 1000 Super-de-Luxe was built for the home market between 28-29th April 1957 and supplied new by Stewart and Ardern Limited in Turquoise with Grey upholstery. The car has spent recent years in Lancashire with a MMOC member and the Morris has been in fairly regular use.
206 LMM has arrived with us in fine order having being subject of some major refurbishment of recent years. The Morris has been treated to a body restoration that included new floors, boot floor, rear inner wings, rear wings and was the fully re-sprayed in Clipper Blue. The Minor was fitted with new bumpers and overriders and various new rubbers, kick plates and finishing trims.
Mechanically the Morris was treated to an unleaded head, reconditioned gearbox, larger front brakes, new cylinders, shoes and brake pipes. The suspension was poly bushed and a new petrol tank fitted and SU fuel pump fitted. The interior trim was upgraded with reclining Metro seats for added comfort, new carpets, door cards and headlining and further work expenditure included new tyres, flashing indicators fitted alongside working semaphores and final touches included a CD player, battery isolator and wax oyl.
As a result of the extensive work this Minor is a great little car ideal for regular use, shows, even every day use with its various upgrades. The car presents well with a strong straight body, bright good quality paintwork, lovely chrome and excellent engine bay. The interior trim presents very nicely and on the road our Minor is absolute delight with a lovely excellent performing engine and gearbox and efficient brakes to match top class handling.
