Lovely little Morris Minor - currently named 'Audrey'. Apparently was 'Herbert Maurice' for many years.

Limited Edition 2 door full windscreen model.
Originally grey, now a lovely pale cream with red trim.


Good all round condition, good mechanically. Underside of car has been undersealed. Paintwork in good condn: a few minor blemishes, not obvious unless looking for them - see photos. Gearbox takes a little getting to know, slips out of 2nd occasionally but easy to learn to control.

Perfectly reliable - I've been driving Petone- Wellington almost daily. Very good fun; people honk, wave and smile all the time!

Recent attention: Changed spark plugs and leads, points, and the distributor cap and distributor rotor. Also had a full tune carried out on motor, runs well. Also 'cut out floor and inner sill sections, made up new repair sections and welded in'. Repairs carried out by reputable Classic & Modern Motoring, Petone.

Inner is red seats and linings, red floor carpets - all good condition. Front dashboard has 2 gloveboxes - I've relined with quality carpet. 2 level boot also relined with quality carpets.

Plenty of spares: box of wee parts, 5 spare tyres (1 in boot), 2 spare gearboxes. All incl. with the car.

Why we're selling?? Don't want to - I love this car. But 1st baby on the way - this isn't a sensible car for baby carseat and buggy etc. And it deserves to be garaged all the time, and I can only fit it in our garage sometimes.

Cheap insurance ($80ish a year) via AA Vintage cover. Rego also cheaper than modern cars.

Have historical paperwork, including original Certificate of Registration. Has spent most of it's life in Dunedin, Greymouth, Christchurch and Nelson areas.

Off the UK production line in 1959. Reg'd as new in Dunedin 2 June 1959. An old newspaper cutting says it's twin (next off the line) is also still running in NZ.

Inspections welcome- in Petone. Can help ship anywhere in NZ.
