Sellers original description:

You Can Search As Hard As You Like But I Very Much Doubt You Will Find A Better More Original 1953 Split Screen Minor.

A "cheese Grater" Finished In Almond Green This Low Mileage 38,257 Is Unwelded, Rust Free And Has All The Original Wings/panels/doors Etc.

It Has Its Original 918cc Side Valve Engine And The Car Is Backed By Huge Provenance; Including:- *original Bill Of Sale By Arden And Bull Of Altrincham In December 1952 And Correspondence Surrounding The Purchase *morris Guarantee Certificate Dated 1st January 1953 *original Insurance Certificates And Many Annual Certificates Of Insurance *test Certificates Dating Back To Its First "ten Year Test Certificate" In January 1963 *20 Tax Discs Dating From 1955 *original Rac Membership Cards From 1953, Rac Key And Rac Coprrespondence Relating To Membership *fuel Ration Certificates (from The Suez Petrol Crisis) *veteran Motor Club Memberships From Original Owner *various Other Receipts And Correspondence *original Workshop Manual And Owners Manual Sadly A Previous Owner Sold The Original Number Plate Plate.

However The Correspondence And Provenance Bears Out That This Is An Original Car With Verified Genuine Mileage.

As I Have Already Stated, The Car Is Original And Has Trafficators Which Work, No Seat Belts And No Wing Mirrors Because That Is How It Came From The Factory And I Have Not Wanted To Alter It.

The Last Mot Ran Out On 21st July 2012 And Of Course It Now No Longer Requires An Mot.

It Has Been Recently Taxed With Twelve Months Because It Is Free.

I Have Had The Paintwork Restored To A Very High Standard By A Professional Car Restoration Company As The Close Up Photographs Will Show.

Note Also That The Gaps Around The Wings/doors And Bonnet Are Perfect Showing That It Is Original, And All Doors Close Perfectly Flush.

If You Examine Most Old Cars Closely Around The Panel Joins And The Door Bottoms You Will Invariably Find Problems Of Poor Fit And Corrosion. Certainly Not With This Car.

The Chrome Work On The Bumpers/hub Caps And Overriders Is Perfect.

The Car Has Been Re Carpetted By Professionals At A Cost Of £500. Not A Cheap £100 Replacement Carpet Set As Widely Sold.

The Tyres Are All Good, And The Leather Upholstery Is In Excellent Condition Along With The Door Cards.

Before I Carried Out Restoration Including The Paintwork And Interior, I Obtained A Guaranteed Insurance Cover For This Car Of £4,500.

This Is A Truly Excellent Example Of This Iconic Motor In Show Condition. A Car You Can Be Very Proud Of.
