German Minor

Another eBay Minor find, on this occasion by Tom Bourne, the Morris Register historian. Tom spotted the image on the German eBay site and as a result the snapshot was purchased for the Network’s archive. There are no caption details on the reverse of the print and the only clue appears on the vehicle’s registration plate. The letters ‘HZ’ inform that the car was registered in Herzberg, a town in the Gottingen district in Lower Saxony.  The 1933 Minor Two-seater HZ 52259 is carrying a strange ‘Morris’ script on its radiator while the period looks to be the forties or fifties. Was the car exported to Germany in the pre-war period or was it perhaps the former mount of an occupying British seviceman?
