MORRIS MINOR TO STAY IN PRESENT FORM
FROM OUR MOTORING CORRESPONDENT
An announcement by the British Motor Corporation yesterday assured the continuance in its present form of the Morris Minor four-cylinder car.
To offset rumours to the contrary, B.M.C. said that the Morris 1000 was to continue in production for some long time to come. The rumours have been current for best part of a year-first that the small Morris was to be restyled and renamed the “Major”, and more recently that it would appear with transversely mounted engine and front-wheel drive, as a larger version of the Mini-Minor.
