Amazing Restoration of the 1950 Series MM Morris Minor Tourer

by Peter Barnes

The 1950 Series MM Morris Minor Tourer was a convertible version of the Morris Minor, a small car produced by Morris Motors, a British automobile manufacturer. The Tourer had a removable roof, folding windscreen, and fold-down rear seats, allowing it to be converted into a open-top car.

It was powered by a 918 cc inline-four engine and had a top speed of around 60 mph. The Tourer was produced from 1948 to 1971 and was popular for its affordability and reliability.  It was succeeded by the Morris Minor 1000 in 1956, which featured a larger engine and updated styling.
