1952 Other Makes
For sale is a very solid 1952 Morris Minor MM sidevalve with 14,137 miles. When obtained from an estate it had a 1970 license plate. It still had its original Avon tires with red rubber inner tubes (all flat of course).The original Driver's Handbook, a factory workshop manual, and numerous pieces of literature are included. The following repairs were carried out in order to make the car operable: new fuel pump, complete cleaning of the fuel system, rebuild kits installed in all the hydraulics. The original starter and generator were rebuilt by P&G electrical rebuilders. The voltage regulator was replaced with newer type but the original regulator is included. A reasonably good set of Dunlop tires from a later Morris Minor 1000 were installed on the original rims. The engine was removed in order to install a new clutch disc (the original disc had seized to the flywheel). While out of the chassis the engine was painted. The valve clearances were set, new points and plugs were installed. The radiator was cleaned, the radiator hoses and fan belt were replaced. After changing the oil and filter it started right up and it runs very well. A complete exhaust system (identical to the original) was fabricated in aluminized pipe by a local exhaust specialist and installed. The car has no major rust. A few spots of surface rust which has been covered with red oxide primer but NO rust-through anywhere. The car has been repainted (over 40 years ago). The interior isn't perfect but it is restorable. We aren't experts but we think the interior is original. This car can be driven away as it sits.
