    Category: Bicycles
    Description: The Morris Minor was a much-loved car while it was in production and has remained popular as a classic car, with many clubs devoted to keeping it on the road. Though retrospectively it has gained a rather 'homely' reputation, at its launch in 1948 it was an exciting and fresh concept, with radical engineering and daring ' American' styling. Morris Motors had given a young engineer named Alec Issigonis his first chance to head up a design team and, though he would become most famous for the Mini ten years later, the Morris Minor was just as innovative in its period. Behind the car's success, however, lies a fascinating behind-the-scenes story of the battle to get into production in the face of opposition from the company's founder and chairman, Lord Nuffield. Illustrated with period illustrations - many of them in colour - from the BMC archive, this is the perfect introduction to this iconic car.

Magnify Morris Minor Traveller
Morris Minor Traveller
Morris Minor Traveller
Category: Bicycles
Description: For more than half a century the Morris Minor Traveller has been a familiar feature of rural and small-town Britain. Unpretentious, uncomplaining, half-timbered in an age of sleek pressed steel, Travellers were to be seen everywhere, laden with schoolchildren, dogs, jumble for the jumble sale, buzzing bravely along at no great speed. Ray Newell is the unchallenged authority on Minor matters, and here he begins by providing in-depth descriptions of the 803cc, 948cc and 1098cc Traveller models, with details of production and specification changes. He also looks at special purpose versions as used by the armed forces, the coastguard and even the Barbados police, plus one-off Travellers including an intriguing three-door conversion first built in the early 1950s. Includes a special section on restoring the Traveller's timber framework on the body. The final section of the book deals with upgrades available to bring the Minor's performance, braking and suspension up to more modern standards. These include engine replacements, five-speed gearboxes and disc brakes as well as less radical modifications.
