Morris 1938-71 - 2018 Market Review
Morris 1100 four-door saloon

Every model we have considered in this category is over 50 years old and some are headed for an extraordinary 80 years. Each one including the pre-WW2 8 and 10 models is still a source of enjoyment while offering easy maintenance.

During the 1950s, half of the small cars on Australian roads were Morris Minors so a lot survive and usually cost $6000-8000. Even the less common soft-top tourers aren’t expensive.

The more roomy Oxford is gaining but remains cheaper than a Minor. If you can find a good one the most competent car in this group is the 1100.

$6000 buys a car with exceptional handling plus a 1.1-litre version of BMC’s A Series engine which can be tuned or replaced to provide entertaining performance.

Eight/Ten $9040 [4]

Minor Sedan $8720 [38]

Minor Tourer 1949-60 $14,750 [5]

Oxford 1949-58 $7945 [9]

1100 $5980 [6]
