Morris Minors are, by their very nature, reliable motor cars.
Our 40 years of experience with them has shown that, in matters of safety and mechanical reliability we are very successful.
We have created the 5 star package - the very core parts that sometimes require 'extra' attention.

Feedback from our customers suggests these core parts have caused problems later down the line.
They are always in good working order when they leave us, however with the disadvantage of not being able to formally test them means it is impossible to know how long they will remain functional.
If we changed all the items automatically, they would cost over £450.00 however we understand the need to budget and be careful. So, in order to encourage the purchase we have put them down at special price.
Most Morris Minors were originally fitted with a dynamo, for motoring this is adequate however we also recommend that an alternator is fitted.
What does it do?
It increases reliability when your moderinized Morris Minor has additions, such as, heated rear screen, radio, heated blower and halogen headlights.
If you spend a lot of time driving in the dark in slow moving traffic and have ancillary components, (like the heated rear screen) then an alternator will help make your vehicle more reliable for the following reasons:
A dynamo’s maximum output is 22 amps. A normal vehicle, with headlamps, wipers and heated blower on will demand approximately 18 amps leaving a cushion of only 4 amps to sustain the battery. An alternator however, on tick-over will produce 28 amps, more than enough to deal with existing demand and also additional demands such as halogen headlamps, heated rear screen, powerful radio. Also, batteries tend to last longer if they are kept fully charged and an alternator is best at doing this.
The current cost of an alternator supplied and fitted including parts and labour: £144.00
Plus VAT: £28.80
At the time of purchase this can be reduced to: £135.00
