HX 8980 1931 Morris Minor Semi-Sports

Although officially a 1931 season car, far greater numbers of the £125 Morris Minor Semi-Sports models were constructed and sold in the period late August to late December 1930 than in the following eight month period. This was almost entirely due to the introduction of the S.V. £100 Minor Two-seater just before the Christmas holiday in December 1930.  This Middlesex registered car however, sports a registration plate (HX 8980) of a sequence that was issued in the period between 1933 and 1939, which suggests that it was re-registered at some point post 1933. Thanks goes to Keith Durston for unearthing this photo of his friend Ginge Marshall and brother, which was probably taken in the late forties/early Fifties. The car survives and is currently in the custodianship of Daniel Redmond.
