Buy Bertie Bassett

What? – A 1963 Morris Minor 1000 convertible finished in a dark and seductive black. This menacing Minor is fresh off a full restoration and would make the ideal addition to the budding British classic car enthusiast.

Why? – This particular Minor, affectionately named “Bertie Bassett” by a previous owner, is a shining example of how great these little cars can look. After undergoing a full restoration, this dinky little Moggy now sports a brand new red leather interior. Coupled with the gorgeous black finish with new chrome work, the interior is simply sublime.

The hood is also brand new, with an upgraded mechanism, and the seller will even throw in a retro picnic basket to mount on the rear. With only four owners throughout its lifetime, the first from new to 2005, this Morris is certainly worth snapping up.

Where? – Spotted on Car and Classic, from a dealership (Yorkshire Classic & Sports Cars) in Yorkshire.

Odometer reading? – 93,000 Miles.

The Bad Bits? – It’s not made of liquorice.

How Much? – A reasonable £16,995. For the condition, this represents a fair price.
