Morris 850Murilee Martin9/10/07 9:30amFiled to: Down On The Street1960sAlamedaMinimorrisUnited Kingdom33EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkHere's another one of those cars that makes it a real challenge to pinpoint an exact model year. The license plate is a '65 or '66 issue, but the Mini was only sold as a "Morris 850" in the US until 1962. This means it's either a 1959-62 model that was first registered in California in the mid-60s, or it's a Frankensteined Mini assembled from 27 other cars... in which case the whole question becomes sort of a meaningless angels-on-head-of-pin debate, anyway. What we do know is that ass is kicked in copious quantities by this little English machine. The '66 Datsun 411 from a few months back parks very close to this Mini, so there's a good chance they're owned by the same person. I mean, if you like vintage Minis, odds are you also like early Datsuns.
