The original Morris Minor excelled as a roomy vehicle with superior cornering / handling characteristics. Early cars had a painted section in the centre of the bumpers to cover the widening of the production car from the prototypes. This widening of four inches (102 mm) is also visible in the creases in the bonnet. The enduring affection for the "Morrie" is reflected in the number of restored and improved Morris Minors.
