In 1962 what would be the last of the Morris Minor / 1000 series derivatives arrived on the scene, the (1098cc) Morris 1000. The new 1000 introduced some worthwhile improvements, the biggest change of coarse being the new, larger capacity engine. Other modifications included a new dashboard layout (a lidded glove box on the passenger side, an open cubby hole in front of the driver), a different heater, plus new, larger tail/flasher and front side/flasher lamps.
From 1962 the 1000 range began to slowly wind down to the inevitable close in 1971. By 1969 production of the Morris 1000 Tourer had stopped, next went the Saloons in 1970 and finally the Traveller and commercials in 1971. Today the Morris Minor and 1000 are amongst the best served Classic, family sized cars in the movement and continue to gain popularity.
