An Indonesian Tourer…

By July 31, 2018Headline News

A glance at the handwritten Morris progress books which recorded Minor production throughout the model’s life will show that the vast majority of cars passed along the line in model batches. For example it was not unusual for a batch of twenty saloons to be followed by  five Tourers and then by a batch of ten Two-seaters. Occasionally these larger batches were interspersed by singletons. One such car was M30633, a Minor Tourer which passed along the Cowley line in November 1930. These individual cars may have represented small orders from overseas agents as this car has been found in Indonesia, an unlikely spot for such a discovery and all the more welcome for that.
