Danish Army Specific: A small number of Minors (also known as Morris 2-seater) was acquired between 1933 and 1937.
Historical
: The Morris Minor was produced by Morris Motors Limited in two versions. From 1928 to 1932 the cars had an 847 cc overhead-camshaft engine. This was replaced by a more conventional side-valve unit of the same capacity until production ended in 1934. 39,087 of the overhead-camshaft type and 47,231 of the side-valve version were made
In 1932 the body was slightly restyled with a more rounded look and the fuel tank moved from the scuttle area below the windscreen to the rear of the car. An electric fuel pump was fitted. 1933 saw a four-speed gearbox replacing the three-speed unit on the more expensive models and in 1934 this was fitted with synchromesh on the top ratios. All models now had hydraulic brakes.
The Minor was replaced by the Morris Eight in 1934, which continued as a sales success and the Morris Minor name was revived in 1948 on the Issigonis-designed car.
