It is screwed under the dashboard, just to the left of the choke knob. I'm sure if you Google 'Morris Minor dashboard' you will find a picture.

........and only fitted to late Series11s and early Minor 1000s. Late Minor 1000s had an ashtray on each end of the parcel shelf.

If your car originally had that type of twin ashtray fitted, then the mounting holes will still be present at each end of your parcel tray.
If, on the other hand, your car is an earlier model and was originally fitted with the metal type in your first picture then the mounting holes will still be present underneath the metal dashboard. No cars had BOTH types. The ones in your latest picture are what replaced the one in your earlier picture. You haven't told us what year your car is, so it is impossible to judge :wink:
