1955 Morris Minor Classic Car

Perhaps the most of English of all English cars, this 1955 Morris Minor – or, as many people know them, a ‘Morrie’ – is guaranteed to make you smile.

Incredibly popular here in New Zealand, more than 1.6 million Morris Minors were manufactured between 1948 and 1972. In fact, the Morris Minor was the very first English car to sell in excess of a million units: an impressive feat, and testament to this classic car’s enduring appeal.

Legend has it that the designer, Alec Issigonis, originally came up with the vision for what would eventually become the Morris Minor on the reverse of an envelope in an air-raid shelter during WWII.

This particular Morris Minor was donated to Bill Richardson Transport World by Rex Williams, the then-chair of the HWR Group. Once upon a time, it was his family’s car.
