Morris Minors were made in Britian by Morris Motors Limited from 1948 to 1972.
The Morris Minor made its debut at the Earls Court Motor Show in London on 20 September 1948, available initially as either a two-door saloon or convertible tourer. The range was developed to include a four-door saloon, a wood-framed estate car, a panel van and a pick-up.
Morris Minors are considered to be a classic example of motor vehicle design, as well as typifying 'Englishness'.
Billy left the assembly line originally as a 1000cc series, and his engine has since been upgraded to 1098cc, giving him just a little more pulling power!
