The little Morris Minor is finding great favour with enthusiasts, because of its comfortable riding, excellent handling qualities, including very light steering, its spacious interior and its ability to cruise all day, once it gets going, at a speedometer 60 m.p.h. Clearly these Minors will be an increasingly familiar sight on our roads for many years to come and the enthusiast will wish to modify his own car so as to add individuality to its other good points.

Already Jarvis and Sons of Wimbledon have introduced a de-luxe version of the Minor tourer.

The hood is constructed of stout rubberised and lined mohair material with a black-base flecked with maroon, green, grey, blue or black to choice, with side-screen frames covered to match. The rear sides of the hood meet the body sides just in front of the vertical hood irons, thus hiding them from view externally, the correspondingly shorter side-screens and lined interior giving a very snug effect.

The construction gives exceptionally clean external lines. With a deep and well-fitting draught-strip along the inside edges of the windows and the stiffer material which covers the top of the windows externally, the weather protection is exceptionally good. In the “down” position the hood folds as neatly as the production one. A hood bag is provided, giving the open car a very tidy appearance. The rear side-screens may be left in position when the hood is down.

The price of the conversion as shown is £21 and it can be modified in detail to suit individual requirements at a revised charge. Four days are required to carry out this conversion and patterns of material will be sent on request. Further extras, such as Perspex side-screens, tonneau cover, etc., are available and owners of Modern Harris Minor tourers will find inspection of this conversion well worth while. It is on view at Morris House, Morden Road, London, S.W.19 (Liberty 4656).
