Morris Minor brochure entries...

Morris Motors published their brochures on 1st September each year. Within their pages were contained the detailed descriptions and specifications for the following calendar year's cars. The 1929 model year Morris Minor therefore made its first appearance in the Morris Motors range brochure dated 1st September 1928. In addition to the range brochures Morris also published other leaflets from time to time. Below are examples of both types of documents. More will be added as they become available. (The 1931 S.V. Brochure scans were provided by Tony Gamble - with thanks.)

The Minor within the Morris Range 1928 -1934...

In the twenties and thirties the September editions of the Morris Owner magazine all carried a feature article on the following season's range of cars. The only exception found was for 1928, when upon its launch the Minor was featured quite separately to the remainder of the range. The PDFs below illustrate clearly how the Minor fitted neatly into the the ever growing Morris range and also how it incorporated the advances in technical devolopment and automotive fashion during this period.

Special thanks are due to Ken Martin for his help with this feature.
