Morris Minor celebrates 60th birthday

This year marks 60 years since the first Morris Minor vehicle went into production in Cowley, Oxfordshire.

In order to celebrate the milestone, Ray Newell’s book – Morris Minor: 60 Years on the Road – looks back on the life and times of the popular British car.

The title features a comprehensive breakdown of each model released under the name, as well as the accessories which customised it and the modifications that have been made.

Also included is an index of road test reviews, charting the critical history of the motor brand.

"In this celebratory publication, Ray Newell looks in detail at the development of the wide range of models produced during a production run which spanned 22 years in the UK," the publisher states.

The original prototype name for the Morris Minor was the Mosquito and it was originally launched at the Earls Court Motor Show in 1948.
