Morris Minor 1956-1959 Leather Maroon Rear Seat Cover Newton Commercial RRP £608

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/133802861482 Morris Minor 1956-1959 Leather Maroon Rear Seat Cover (Newton Commercial RRP £608). These leather rear seat covers have had very little use and came out of my excellent 1957 four door saloon – they really are as close to new as they could be. They were bought ...

Re: Advice on Alternative Seats

Also, yes, bizarre about the Newton Commercial matching the matador red with a maroon. I took that out along with the Newton commercial seats which I find uncomfortable and take up too much space in my opinion. I mounted these quite high at the back and I find it saves my lower back (had an op there...

Re: Advice on Alternative Seats

A couple of things to reply to: 1. The current interior was done by Bobby from Milton Keynes who advertises on here from time to time. 2. Bobby did some of the draught excluder and I also bought some of the usual stuff from ESM and I think it was the same. 3. The wheels are BMC competition Morris Mi...

Re: Advice on Alternative Seats

I finally got the procar seats recovered in a more original matador red leather and into the car (it's a 1957 4 door in black) - JLH bases were too large for these so we had to default to the universal fitting kits supplied by the manufacturer.

After 12 years, 3 children and 4 cats I fel...
