MORRIS MINOR 70 Years on the road
The postwar Morris Minor, designed by Alec Issigonis, was one of the most popular British Cars. 2018 marks 70 years since the first Minors rolled off the production lines at Cowley in Oxfordshire. In this celebratory publication Ray Newell looks in detail at the development of the wide range of models produced during a production run that spanned twenty two years in the UK. Using mainly contemporary materials covering four decades, he transports the reader back to an era when the pace of life was much slower and the marketing of the vehicles was considerably different to the slick advertising of today. The worldwide appeal of this trendsetting vehicle is examined in the context of the 'export or die' mentality that dominated postwar Britain, as are the innovative production methods used to ensure that 'Morris Motors Ltd' lived up to its 'quality first' reputation. Variations from standard specifications are considered with reference to mechanical uprating, different body styles and the use of modern accessories to enhance further the comfort and styling of what was dubbed 'The World's Supreme Small Car.' Issigonis sketches of the prototype cars, sales brochures, promotional materials, and rare and unusual photographs make this a fascinating book. The continuing appeal of the car voted Britain's most popular classic in 2016 is examined, as are the factors which continue to attract a new generation of 21st century owners.

Over de auteur(s)Ray Newell is a recognised authority on the Morris Minor, having written extensively on the subject over a number of years, and is a true enthusiast with a wealth of experience in owning, driving and restoring this popular car. He is also the National Secretary of the UK-based Morris Minor Owners' Club, a position he has held since 1983. This revised and exciting publication has been compiled to celebrate the landmark achievement of 70 years since the Morris Minor entered production. Using contemporary materials, Ray has drawn on his expansive personal collection - as well as those of fellow enthusiasts - to produce a striking publication which transports readers back to the years when the Morris Minor was in production and when it was being assembled from CKD kits in other parts of the world. In this book the author brings the Morris Minor story up to date with a comprehensive review of the factors which have made the Morris Minor one of the most popular classic cars and an enduring favourite with owners throughout the world. Ray has also written the Morris Minor Essential Buyer's Guide in the popular Veloce series.
