In 1948, after World War II, the Morris Minor took on the look of the model on display. There were three versions, or upgrades over the years with the 1000 Model produced from 1954-1971, of which nearly 150,000 were built.
These cars were designed to be roomy and fuel efficient as gasoline prices in Europe were several times higher than in the United States. The 1000 Model had a top speed of approximately 75 mph and was rated at close to 40 miles per gallon.
