Morris Minor Two-seater JO 764

This is an unusual photo snippet of the £100 Minor development car (JO 764)  in that the hood is folded away in its bag while the side-screens remain in position.

The six-cylinder MG K3 enjoys legendary status among aficionados. These two scans from a sequence of five re-touched photographs display the model’s classic lines. (LAT Autocar photoscans courtesy of Motorsport Images)
