The first generation of Morris Minor was introduced in 1928. The Minor name debuted for a series of compact two or four seaters that were available in a range of body styles including saloon, tourer, and coupe. This family of cars was powered by an 847cc inline four engine available with 3 or 4 speed manual transmissions. Production of the first generation Minor would last until 1934, when the model was put on hiatus. The second generation of Minor, known as the Morris Minor MM, would be unveiled in 1948.
