2021 Market Review - Morris 1938-1971

Back in the 1950s when families were larger and seat belt laws non-existent, whole tribes were quite often packed into a Morris Minor. Hundreds survived such treatment and values for excellent cars are headed for $15,000.

Most, however, remain at around $10,000 with the Tourer convertible and Traveller wagons dearer. Four-door Oxfords are effectively an enlarged Minor but generally for sell for 30 percent less.

Also improving in value are 1930s-40s Eight and Ten models which came as a sedan, open Tourer or useful pickup with convertible top.

The last Morris to sell in any volume here was the Hydrolastic-suspended 1100; these cars seen as complex to maintain which has affected survival rates and values.
