1968 Morris Minor 1000 Convertible

Highlights

  • Registered with the Automotoclub Storico Italiano
  • Fitted with a new soft top
  • Much of the chromework has been replaced
  • Recent overhaul of brakes alongside general mechanical maintenance 
  • Charmeing contrast between exterior colour and soft top


The Appeal

In an era when most convertibles were strictly two-seater, removing the roof from the much-loved Morris Minor was nothing short of a masterstroke. Its compact footprint, practicality and modest price tag ensured the Minor Cabriolet was an instant hit and it remains the most desirable variant of the quintessential British classic to this day.
This particular example stands out with its striking blue paintwork and brand-new contrasting soft top. A recent mechanical overhaul and the addition of new chrome parts enhance its appeal, making it a fantastic choice for any enthusiast seeking a British classic that’s ready to enjoy.
