The car was an updated version of the 1971 Morris Marina. The most successful Morris in terms of both sales and reputation was the post - war Minor. Selling over 1,500,000 units of all derivatives, the 1948 Issigonis designed Morris 'Mosquito', was renamed the 'Minor' prior to launch. It remained in continuous production for 23 years.
