1950 MORRIS MINOR

Post-war successor to the famous Morris Minors of the inter-war years, the 1950 Minor is claimed to be the small car interpretation of a big car specification. There is every justification for this assertion, for the engine embodies years of experience, while the rigid, all-steel body and chassis, constructed in one unit, is in the modern style. The body lines also have been designed to lessen air drag and give that pleasing new look so popular today.

The interior appointments of the Minor are also in keeping with the car's good looks, as will be seen in the photograph of the facia panel, with grouped instruments, locker and full-width parcels tray.

There is also available a Convertible body style, with all-weather equipment and winding glass windows in the doors instead of the detachable side-screens of yesteryear.
