Morris Minor OHC Cammy Saloon 1930
Classic Classics are delighted to offer this lovely 1930 Morris Minor OHC “Cammy” for sale.
This Morris Minor has a very special place in our collection as a pre-war classic. It stands out in the crowd with masses of character and a charming, well groomed appearance.
Finished in Maroon over Black with Brown leatherette upholstery, this particular model sports a winged calometer, ‘Kopalapso’ fold back roof, a rear mounted spare wheel and what appears to be the original rubber inserts to its running boards.
Sitting in the car you have a great sense of history and also scale. The sheer size of this perfectly formed Morris Minor is remarkable. It really does live up to its reputation of being “built like a big car – in miniature”. It adds to the fun and charm of this wonderful example.
Our fully functional working model is one of only 39,000 ever made in the short five years of productions. It was first registered by Sheffield Council on the 14th of October 1930 as WE9758. Under 400 exist today, but with its huge popularity within clubs and rallies across the county, this car would offer any car enthusiast a fantastic opportunity to get involved and enjoy such a piece of motoring history.
William Morris launched the Morris Minor OHC Cammy in response to the extremely popular Austin 7. When the 1928 The Autocar magazine reviewed it as being “full of fire and life” it soon calmed the stir created after its launch that the expensive and also advanced overhead camshaft 850cc four cylinder engine, and the breaking system all worked and created what is one of our favourite classics of today.
To fully appreciate this car, we recommend a viewing at our showroom in Lincolnshire. Contact us for more details or to make your appointment.
