1931 Morris Minor folding head coupe.

Vin Number:  SV3279

Registration number:  PFF685

Utterly original & charming.  This Morris Minor was discovered in a barn after a 40 year lay up with just 9000 miles showing on the odometer.  It really is a time warp.  The pedals show no sign of wear whatsoever & the rexine interior is in pristine original condition though out with just a little foxing to the headlining.  The Fold back front roof has been recovered in black mohair as it had deteriorated to the point where replacement made sense.  The car is now showing 9169 miles 5 of which we put on this morning driving to our photo site & back.

Nicely appointed in two tone grey over black; the paint is in excellent condition.  To the interior is maroon rexine absolutely as it left the factory.  4 brand new tyres have been fitted.  The car is mechanically faultless. with huge oil pressure & easy starting first time every time.  The brakes are very sharp & pull the car up well.  The engine has good pulling power & is a pleasure to drive via the easy three speed gear box.

The car was sold by the son of the former 90 year old owner & has been sympathetically recommissioned to the condition we find it in today.  First supplied in Anglesey the dash carries  a plate from J. Henry Roberts of Plas Garage  LLangefni.

Everything works as it ought.  The folding head roof is simplicity in itself to open by simply flinging it rearwards after undoing two wing nuts.  The front screen also hinges wide open to allow for pleasant cooling & an alfresco feel on hot days.  The horn has a deep baritone sound befitting of a far larger car.  The rear has a spare wheel mounted to it.  Assorted spares come with the car including a new head gasket etc.

Simply put this car is a little gem, pleasant to drive with plenty of room for taller drivers & is in untouched  time warp condition.
