Of the 350 ‘Millions’ produced in December 1960, 30 were built left hand drive specification and exported to Europe and North America. The 320 right hand drive were carefully distributed to all the BMC dealers in the UK each of whom, from Jersey to Shetland, had a Million so that every showroom had a car on display on the official launch date -4th January 1961. The actual millionth car rolled off the production line on 22 December 1960 to be photographed with the minor’s creator , Alex Issigonis. Perhaps because the British public were too conservative for lilac in 1961 some of the cars were slow to sell but about 1 in 5 have survived to this day – a pretty impressive percentage !
The Minor Million Register was formed as part of the Morris Minor Owners Club in the late 1970’s to bring together owners with this strange lilac craving.
