The morris minor is one of those cars i like to call
"CLASSIC OF CLASSICS" when people think of classics, a lot of people think of the beetle and the minors!

LOOKS
=========
Not bad at all for a car over 30 years old, infact quite good looking, its roundish!!! Most cars of its day were more square! It looks cute, and almost smiles at you, with those massive headlamp eyes!
Like one of the other Morris minor reviews states, no - one smiles at you in a everyday car.
This is a real head turner!

Comfort
===========
Again not brilliant, but not bad at all, this car is over 30 years old, the seats are off a good qulaity, even more so if the car has been cared for!
Ok the creature comforts are limited, most have radio, which has been fitted aftersale. The seats are mainly leather, and well thats your lot really!
But its ok, how comfy do do expect it to be anyway?

Image
=======
Well its very good! Its a head turner, eye brow raiser,mouth opener! Its different! Its one of those cars, that kids have to wave at when they see one!
Its a real enthusiasts car!

Reliable??
=========
Not bad for a 30 year old car, of course it will need tweaking every now again, what classic does not?
If you buy one with a good MOT on it, you should not have too many problems. just need to keep it cared for and tweaked!

VALUE AND PRICE
===============
Rust buckets with no MOT and in need of work can be picked up for a £200, but to get one in a good condidtion and a MOT, you are looking at £700 minimum, but fully restored cars can fetch up to £3000, for a saloon , even more for the rare Estates(travelers) and the convertibles.
The chances are one with MOT, but road worthy, but needs a little "TLC" and minor work will set you back just over a grand!

Where can i buy one?
====================
There is lots of sale on Ebay and on Autotrader.
But there is also specialist Classic dealers scatered about, just need to browse the the WORLD WIDE WEB.


Overall, a very good car, if you are after a classic, then maybe the Morris Minor is for you!
Hope it is of some help!

I can remember riding around in one many years ago. There's not much room in the back seat! Brings back memories! Karen x
