Default My Morris Minor 1930 OHC Tourer (Winner of the Best Restored Vintage car award)

Hi , This thread is about my Morris Minor 1930 OHC tourer which I had acquired last year and which underwent a full restoration over the last year.

The Minor won the Best Restored Vintage car prize at the 14th Rajputana vintage and classic car rally at Jaipur 2012.

Congratulations for winning the prize for best restoration.

For us to appreciate your car, you need to put a lot more better pictures. Please post before and after pictures so that we can appreciate the restoration.

Looking forward for more pictures.

It appears in prewarminor.com though as Kartik Lunia's 1930 Minor Tourer USJ 1795 attended the 14th Jaipur Antique & Vintage Car show

Lovely car. In my college days I had access to a similar car which I took to college a couple of times. Easy to drive, and when you have such a car you don't need to buy a Nano. But always make sure your brakes are OK.
Is there any history to the car, and do you have pictures of the car before restoration started?

Cheers harit

The car was bought from Lucknow and before that was in Ayodhya ,
the registration changed from UPX to USJ some time in the 1950's.

I still have to do some research and find out about the first owner.

couple of pictures of the car before restoration.

I believe not many Pre war Morris Minors OHC cars have survived in India.


Cheers

Congrats on winning the award Kartikeya. Nice to see one more Lucknow origin car on the forum. Would love to see some more snaps of the restoration.
BTW from where in Lucknow did you pick it up?

The car was first owned by Raja Saheb of Ayodhya and then passed on to Shri V.N. Mishra, IPS (Retd.), who re-registered the car in lucknow sometimes in late forties , early fiftees , so the car lost the UPX number and got the USJ no.

The car then remained in ownership of shri V.n Mishra and then was acquired by me last year. I am trying to get some old documents from Shri Mishra , hopefully some old pictures too.

regards
Kartik

Hi,

The clubs in UK would be very interested to know about any pre-war Morris minors in India (1928-34) , do you have any more details about the OHC minors in Ahmedabad and Delhi, some pictures if possible would be great.

Thanks
Kartik
