1949 Morris Minor “lowlight” Saloon


When the rare opportunity came about to bring a Lowlight into stock here at WRCC we jumped at the chance!
It’s not often that you get to have a true piece of our motoring heritage in the showroom!
This particular 1949 car has all the qualities to go for, she is in nice solid clean order, comes with the original buff logbook with 1st owners details, has matching numbers and runs very nicely.


The car is only showing 26,500 miles this is believed to be original and is backed up by MOT certs to 1975,

Mechanically the Low light runs well the engine although not as powerful as later cars runs like a dream, it is the cars original factory unit.
The brakes and transmission work as they should!

The underside of the car is excellent with no rust or rot and looks to have been well cared for all its life! there is no sign whatsoever of any welding or patches which for a 70 year old car is unbelievable!

Interior wise the Morris is very clean and tidy with good carpets, seats and door cards.

Exterior wise the chrome is good, the body work is nice and shiny however there is a few age related marks and some micro blistering we took the option to leave the car in this “honest” condition as some buyers may like the original look of the car.

The paint is also thought to be original!

However if you would like the car paintwork “perfect” this isn’t a problem we can refinish her in WRCC’s in house Bodyshop at extra cost.

The original cross ply tyres come with the car although they are cracked, we have fitted new radials and had the original wheels sand blasted and powder coated.

To summarise if you are looking for something a little bit different and more historical value than you can shake a stick at then this is the Moggy for you!

The Morris comes with 12 Months MOT and 3 Months comprehensive WRCC in house warranty should the screen price be paid.
She will also be fully serviced to WRCC’s rigorous schedule and be treated against corrosion if required before leaving
