Morris 1938-1971: Eight/Ten, Minor sedan, Minor 1000, Minor Tourer, Oxford, Morris 1100 market review

It is 55 years since the Morris Minor was last sold new in Australia but look at the amount still available and the money these basic ‘family classics’ can make.

Most popular is the ‘Morrie’ 1000 that was a first car for many Australians and can now cost $10,000. $6000 will buy a side-valve Oxford which looks like a Minor but offers extra space.

| Buyer's Guide: Morris 1100

Convertible-top Minor Tourers are scarce and can reach $20,000 however $10,000 was enough for most on offer this year.

The Minor was replaced here in 1964 by the front-wheel drive 1100 which was too sophisticated for its own good so surviving cars are scarce.

The pre-WW2 Austin 10 offers something different for a $10,000 outlay.

Eight/Ten 1938-48 $9030 [4] 

Minor Sedan 1949-56 $9050 [13]
