Series V (ADO59)
The final major upgrade to the Minor was made in 1962. Although the nameMinor 1000was retained, the changes were sufficient for the new model to be given its ownADO development number. Morris chassis numbering convention refers to these cars as 'Series V', the 'Series IV' designation having been assigned to theMorris Mini Minor.
A new, larger version of the existingA-Seriesengine had been developed in conjunction with cylinder head specialistHarry Weslakefor the then newADO16Austin/Morris 1100 range. This new engine used a taller block than the 948 cc unit, with increased bore and stroke bringing total capacity up to 1,098 cc. Although fuel consumption suffered moderately at 38 mpg, the Minor's top speed increased to 77 mph (124 km/h), and a 20% increase in torquegave an altogether more responsive drive. The revised engine was teamed to a stronger gearbox fitted withbaulk ring synchromeshreplacing the previous cone-clutch type. Drum brakes were retained on each corner, but the front units were increased from 7 inches (18 cm) to 8 inches (20 cm) in diameter. From October 1963, larger combined front side/indicator light units, common to manyBMCvehicles of the time, were fitted to the front wings, and larger tail lamp units were fitted at the rear. Both incorporated separate amber flashers for directional indicators. In 1964 the interior received its final update, with a new heater unit (now with fresh air ventilation), and from October of that year, a modified dashboard with toggle switches, white-on-black speedometer unit (incorporating a warning light for a blocked oil filter), textured alloy fascia, new glove-box cover design (a fully enclosing bottom-hinged cover on the passenger side, and fixed open aperture surround on the driver's side), and finally a two-spoke 'safety' steering wheel (shared with theMorris 1100) were added.
From 1965, no further major production improvements were made to the Minor,with resource being channelled into improving theADO16(the Minor's spiritual successor and Britain's best-selling car in the 1960s), and development of theMorris Marina, which would succeed the Minor on the Cowley production lines in 1971.
In 1969, production of the Traveller variants was moved to the ex-Wolseleyplant atAdderley Park, where the van and pick-up models were already made. This freed up production space atCowleyand simplified the production chain as the Traveller's rear bodies were built at the Morris Bodies factory inCoventry. Adderley Park-built Travellers were offered in a new range of colours from the paint range that had been introduced for 1970, including vibrant shades such as Limeflower (lime green) and Aqua (turquoise). From 1971 Minors were fitted with a steering-column mounted ignition key and a steering lock rather than the facia-mounted ignition switch used up to that point.
