This is arguably, the most, or should I say one of the most cherished Morris’s in New Zealand. A beautiful little car, that turns heads wherever it goes.
The original Minor - or poached egg as Lord Nufflield delightfully called it - initially complete with side-valve engine, was a sedate performer, and is even more so today, but thanks to delightful handling and steering, it's still a great car to drive.
