Today I had the pleasure of arriving at work to see a well-used Morris Minor Commercial parked on our car park at the David Manners Group. We are particularly fond to see old British classics still being used for what they were originally designed for, and this Morris Minor Van certainly fits this description. As you can see from the pictures, it is not in bad condition by any stretch of the imagination but is clearly still used to carry goods on a regular basis. The bodywork whilst kept to a standard is not the main priority at this stage of its working life. Infact the customer was busy purchasing Morris Minor Commercial Van parts to keep it in its roadworthy state throughout the winter months. Surely a clear indication it would not be relegated to the garage so a younger vehicle could deputise. You may be surprised to hear that owners of Morris Minors, Minor Travellers and Minor Commercials can easily drop by at the David Manners Group to pick up parts already in stock. Since the acquisition of the Morris Minor Centre (Birmingham) and the incorporation into our premises in Oldbury, the opportunity to hold large quantities of stock rare and popular has seen an influx of customers who just want to get their Morris Minor Car back on the road. As you may have read on our news page yesterday, the David Manners Group will be featured on a Car restoration show early next year supplying parts for the build of a Morris Minor Traveller. You will get to see our Morris Minor Parts warehouse first hand. In the meantime, don’t forget to check out our Morris Minor Parts website.

Red Jaguar XF at the David Manners Group

It’s great to see so many Jaguar XF Cars at the David Manners Group this year. Back in September we featured a metallic silver Jaguar XF which simply was stunning. The silver colour was so electric and most of us at DMG were of the opinion there would be no comparisons. This was until we saw this delightful Jaguar XF in metallic red.

The David Manners Group feature in this week’s Classic Car Buyer for their excellent article on buying a Morris Minor, the costs and what to look out for. We have certainly noticed a rapid increase of our younger customers buying a Morris Minor as their foray into the Classic Car market, or indeed as their first car due to the low running costs and how accessible the car is to maintain. The Morris Minor Owners Club who we support every year has to be applauded for their contribution bringing

Our Customers make October month to Remember

We have been extremely busy at the David Manners Group this last couple of weeks. On the 13th October, we attended the Jaguar show at Stoneleigh which was fantastically busy. Yesterday we were back at Stoneleigh for the Mini Fair which impossibly seemed frantic in comparison. Then again, Mini shows draw the crowds in all seasons.

Classic Car at the David Manners Group

At the David Manners Group, as we sell parts for older Classics such as Morris Minor parts, Triumph and Early MG Cars, many parts are interchangeable for other types of car of that age. As a result of this, we regularly have cars appear on our car park picking up parts from us. I never got to meet the owner of this delightful little run-a-round but we know what it is. If you can guess what it is, drop us a line.
