The Morris Minor


Product Description
Product Details


Octane, May 2008 UK magazine Circulation: unknown The great attraction of this very well-illustrated hardback, written by a Minor expert, is that the text plays second fiddle to hundreds of enchanting period ads and brochure shots, including rarities from overseas markets such as India. Vans, pick-ups and Travellers are given lots of coverage, too. It's colorful and good value. The Caravan Club Magazine, May 2008 UK publication Circulation: unknown I have a bit of a soft spot for the Morris Minor. Well, it was the car in which I surrendered my driving virginity - a memorable moment for a fresh-from-school apprentice mechanic. Also, my mechanicking teeth were cut on the cheerful little Morris, among others, and it's been a dear friend ever since. So I'm delighted to see such a colorful, lively and nicely-presented book to celebrate its 60th. The author is an acknowledged Minor authority who puts detail and insight into the text. I thought I knew a bit about Minors, yet there's much, for me to learn here. But it's no dry old marque history - among the period advertising material, photos and drawings lurk anecdotes and 'inside' stories about this most successful British car: the first to pass a million examples. Alec Issigonis designed it and many more mature members will remember it and possibly, at one time, have towed with it. I know someone who still does. My only criticism is that the print is a bit small. Or is it that I'm not too far off the age of the Minor? Happy 60th, Moggy!
