Morris Minor

Morris Minor Million

It is 75 years (in 2023) since Sir William Morris reluctantly launched the Minor, which he rather dismissively called the “poached egg” at the 1948 British Motor Show There are plenty of Minors at Great British Car Journey including a lovely low -light convertible, a 1956 saloon with less than 7,000 miles on the clock, a genuine Minor “Million” and of course an early Traveller. You can even drive a convertible and our second “Minor Million”

Vauxhall Astra

Sadly, the Astra is no longer made in Britain but for more than 40 years it has been a much loved car, popular with Mums , Dads and growing families. Mk1 and 2 Astras are now a rare sight but of course like Chevettes, Vivas and Victors, they can all be seen at Ambergate

Austin Seven

The subject of the first Chapter of The Great British Car Journey : there are numerous examples of Austin’s iconic little car on display, from “ordinary” saloons to Swallows and Sports. There is even a Ruby on our Drive Dads Car fleet so you can sample how the family travelled in the 1930s. The little car built in Birmingham which changed the world.
