Welcome from the President

Welcome to the Canberra Region Morris Minor Club. The club was formed in 1980 to encourage and assist in the preservation and enjoyment of original and modified Morris Minors.

Anyone who has owned a Morris Minor for any length of time will probably be quite fond of their vehicle. The club was formed by people who love Morris Minors because of their uniqueness, their reliability and their durability. It’s a club for people who want to enjoy their Morris Minors and join others with similar interests.

The Canberra Region Morris Minor Club celebrated its 30 year anniversary in 2010. That’s a remarkable achievement, considering it’s only 62 years since the first modern Morris Minor, an MM series, commonly known as a lowlight, came off the production line in Oxford, England, in September 1948. The first Morris Minors arrived in Australia the following year.

Our club caters for all Morris Minor owners, whether they want to maintain a vehicle that is as authentic as possible or if they are interested in modifying a Morris Minor. Our members are able and very willing to provide advice and assistance to people from either group. For example, our members have regular Swoops, where we gather at a member’s garage to help them with their restoration. We have access to a small range of spare parts to help keep Morris Minors moving and an extraordinary level of technical expertise and support for those who are less technically minded.

I hope you enjoy our website, if you own a Morris Minor, we’d love to catch up with you, and if you’re interested in Morris Minors, you are welcome at any of our outings. For information email info@canberramorrisminors.org or president@canberramorrisminors.org.
