The Pre-War Minor Network

A community for enthusiasts of the pre-war Morris Minor


By Headline News

There is nothing glamorous about the pre-war Morris Minor, it was designed, much like the donkey, to be a Jack-of-all-trades, built to convey its owners to work and on the occasional leisure trip. As can be seen, Joe Rayner‘s animals are not just pets, they also serve a very useful purpose as lawnmowers. Trevor Wilkinson’s Minor Two-seater was one of the last of the breed, which by 1934 meant customers could expect refinements such as leather seats and trafficators. The donkey however continues in production unchanged.

IOTW no.540


Yet another IOTW from across the globe, sourced (once again) by John McDonald from Christchurch, New Zealand. This present-day image of an almost derelict 1933 Morris Minor Saloon is from a local NZ website, the site owner being an avid Austin Seven enthusiast. There are two further images and it’s possible to count at least six Austin Sevens, all kept undercover in barns. The Minor however has been left in the open, exposed to the elements, crying out to be rescued.

Triple M corner no.190

By Triple M corner

The Triple M series of MG’s all belong to a family of models that commenced with the 1929 MG Midget and continued through to the mid-thirties via a long string of four and six cylinder OHC engined cars that forged the marques identity.

Another TMC photo in a ten image sequence featuring 1931 MG Midget DG 2327. These photos were taken to illustrate an Autocar article on the virtues of the Isle-of-Man as a touring holiday destination for the mainland motorist. This photo, taken on the promenade in Douglas, features two of the horse drawn trams that were used to transport tourists and locals alike along that famous stretch of coastline.(LATplate E3920 courtesy of Motorsport Images)
