  • Delivered new to Portugal
  • Petite and full of character
  • Offered in excellent condition, with extensive original paperwork

It is thought that more than 86,000 Morris Minors were built between 1928 and 1934, and the car offered here is among the rarest of these petite cars, the two-seaters, which accounted for just 10% of those delivered.

Offered with extensive original paperwork, this two-seater is presented in excellent condition. Accompanying documentation indicates that the car was delivered to Portugal new and has remained there for its entire life. Perhaps unsurprisingly for a car of its age, its engine has been replaced with one of the correct type and benefits from a very clean engine bay, with its excellent overall presentation belying its advanced years.

Full of character and with charm to spare, this Morris Minor two-seater would mark an excellent entry point to the collector car hobby.

  • Entregue novo em Portugal
  • Diminuto e repleto de caráter
  • Oferecido em excelente condição, com vasta documentação original
  • Pensa-se que foram construídos mais de 86.000 Morris Minor entre 1928 e 1934. O exemplar aqui disponibilizado está entre os mais raros deste diminuto modelo, já que as versões de dois lugares representaram apenas 10% das vendas.

    Acompanhado com vasta documentação original, este two-seater apresenta-se em excelente estado. Os documentos que o acompanham mostram que este automóvel foi entregue novo em Portugal, ali permanecendo toda a sua vida. Sem surpresa, dada a sua idade, o motor original foi substituído por outro de correta especificação. Revela um compartimento de motor muito limpo, com uma apresentação geral que parece contrariar a sua idade avançada.

    Repleto de caráter e com charme a rodos, este Morris Minor two-seater pode ser uma excelente iniciação ao hobby do colecionismo automóvel.
