This official looking Morris photograph of a Minor Four-door Saloon was found in glass plate format within the LAT archive. It depicts an early production or pre-production 1934 model, the non-sloping radiator guard providing the visual clue along with the plate’s reference number, which places it in August or September of 1933. Just 2075 long-wheel-base Minor Saloons found customers in the 1934  season, almost exactly half the quantity built in the model’s first  year (1932) when 4029 were constructed. The lwb saloon fared significantly better than the lwb Special Coupe which recorded sales of just 47 units during the 1934 season. (LATplate E3763 courtesy of Motorsport Images)
