Long before a certain other British quirky classic appeared on the scene, the Morris Minor held the title of the quirkiest British car on the market.

Designed by the legendary British-Greek designer Alec Issigonis, the Minor was one of the first mass-produced British cars to emerge from the shadows of World War Two.

And it was a huge success. Its no nonsense design was slightly more polished than its biggest rival at the time – the Volkswagen Beetle.

First launched in 1948, the car has come to symbol ‘englishness’ over the years, and was the first British made car to sell over 1 million units.

The Morris Minor has come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. Its most famous appearance is probably the estate version with its distinctive wooden panels.
