IOTW no.647

By October 4, 2022IOTW

This extract from a larger Autocar print shows a Morris Minor Arrow Two-seater Special lined-up alongside an M.G. Midget at  the Eastbourne Concours Event in September 1930 (magazine edition dated 19-9-30). Both cars will have been relatively new at that time, the first production Midgets leaving Oxford in February 1929, with the first A.P. Compton bodied Arrow Minors appearing in the late autumn of that year. While no production statistics are known to have survived from the various concerns that inherited the Arrow name, the motoring magazine ‘small ads’ columns of the period  clearly indicate that Morris Minor Arrow bodies were by far and away the most popular ‘special’ type to adorn the pre-war Morris Minor chassis.
