Morris Minor Series II (1952-1956)
Like no other car before, the Morris Minor took off: Starting with the concept of a small and therefore inexpensive mobile, the Morris evolved while still on Alec Issigonis' plan from the tiny "Mosquito" to a comfortable and capable vehicle that would become a bestseller in later designs.
1952 the union of Morris and Austin happened to form the British Motor Company. In that year, the Morris Minor Series II was introduced and, like its predecessor, impressed with good corner stability and intuitive handling. The model, which underwent a substantial revision, thereby received a drive derived from the Austin, as well as gearbox, axle housing, cardan shaft and differential.
In addition, the engine was modernized: From now on, the Morris featured an overhead-valve engine with 803 cm3, which was originally designed for the Austin A30. This is smaller than that of the predecessor Minor MM, which is equipped with 918 cm3, but performs better. Although it takes a bit of time to reach just under 100 km/h at 52 seconds, the top speed increased to just over 100 km/h.
In 1952, an estate version was also introduced under the name "Traveller".
Morris Minor 1000 (1956-1971)
In 1956, the company moved away from the wide variety of finishes in color and trim that were offered on the Minor and focused more on rationalization of components. Thus, production of the Minor 1000 allowed for some economies of scale.
- Luxury versions were also available: in 1957, for example, the Riley 1.5 or Wolseley 1500 became available on Minor chassis, but with a larger BMC B-series engine.
The Morris Minor is named after its 948 cm3 engine, which came from the Austin A35 and reached a top speed of 124 mph. In the revision, it received a reinforced crankshaft, which made the already durable Morris even more robust. Handling was made even easier by an optimized gearbox with better graduation.
- The Morris Minor 1000 is the smoothest-running and most durable model in the Minor lineup, which was followed by a saloon and cabrio and then a van and pick-up version.
