….And HARDLY anyone else does in the Americas! I talked to a gentleman from Peru A short while ago who confirmed that indeed, hardly anyone there had ever seen another one! Amazingly, it was a runner, with all the lights and switches and windows still working! It had suffered a failed thermostat of all things, and overheated, so he was hoping to pack his suitcase with what he needed for it while on a trip to the US!
I’m often amazed by the number of first calls we get from people who either have, or have just acquired a Morris Minor! They seem to have found their way to every corner of the world! It might be a rumor, but I’ve heard they might still be building them in India! I’m fond of saying that just about every small town in Idaho seems to have a couple, tucked into old barns! There are even a number of right hand drive Minors here in our small town, which means they were likely imported by their owners from when they lived in RHD countries! These things are like members of the family! There aren’t many NEW cars one can say that about!!
As such, we have done considerable work to update the MorrisMania part of our site. We have separated the MM part numbers so that all “classic” parts are not lumped together, making searching for parts much simpler. We have put the entire original Morris Minor Parts Catalog on the site the same way we did our original Classic Mini “bible“, complete with exploded-view diagrams to help folks identify specific items when they don’t know exactly what to call them! With these relics turning up in far away lands, a picture can go a long way to overcome a language barrier!
I think it should be pretty easy to post a comment or a photo on here. If you have an interesting story or a Minor you’ve built, including crazy ones with V8s and wheelie bars, post about it, or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
