Original Morris Minor is the essential companion to these delightful cars. Its aim is to reveal, in words and color photographs, how the many versions of the Minor - from early 'low-headlamp' 918cc saloon to late 1098cc traveler - altered in detail through the course of production. An amazing number of specification changes, large and small, occurred over the years. The completely authentic specification which the most discerning enthusiasts now demand can be elusive because so many Minors have been altered over the years, often by impecunious owners trying simply to keep aging cars on the road for minimum cost. But help is at hand in Original Morris Minor for all owners, restorers and enthusiasts who want a bible on originality. Drawing from factory production records, parts lists and catalogs, as well as the accumulated knowledge of respected restorers and dedicated enthusiasts, this book provides the most exhaustive production survey of the Morris Minor ever published. Accompanying the authoritative text are over 250 specially commissioned color photographs showing every permutation of Morris Minor specification in remarkable detail.
