A signed copy of Original Morris Minor: The Restorer's Guide to all Saloon, Tourer/Convertible, Traveller and Light Commercial Models, by Ray Newell, with photography by John Colley. Published in 1993 by Bay View Books Ltd., in Devon.
Original Morris Minor is the essential companion to these classic cars. Its aim is to reveal, in words and colour photographs, how the many versions of the Minor - from early 'low-headlamp' 918cc saloon to late 1098cc traveller - altered in detail through the course of production. An amazing number of specification changes, large and small, occurred over the years. The completely authentic specification which the most discerning enthusiasts now demand can be elusive because so many Minors have been altered over the years, often by impecunious owners trying simply to keep ageing cars on the road for minimum cost. But help is at hand in Original Morris Minor for all owners, restorers and enthusiasts who want a bible on originality. Drawing from factory production records, parts lists and catalogues, as well as the accumulated knowledge of respected restorers and dedicated enthusiasts, this book provides the most exhaustive production survey of the Morris Minor ever published. Accompanying the authoritative text are over 250 specially commissioned colour photographs showing every permutation of Morris Minor specification in detail.
In good condition - the unclipped dustjacket shows signs of shelfwear and has a few scratches as well as minor tears (please see cover photos). Nevertheless, this remains a bright and clean copy of this signed edition.
