Welcome to the messageboard trebor. Yes, there is a separate register: http://www.minormillion.co.uk/ Contact e-mail details are towards the bottom of the page.

(I've merged your two separate posts into one as they are about the same topic)

Edit: Is this the car? http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C175842/ Also advertised on classiccarsforsale.co.uk for £9500.

The actual millionth Minor has been auctioned twice, most recently in February this year, but failed to reach the estimated reserve price. I think bidding reached the £8,000 mark.

For some reason 543 BBP doesn't show up on the DVLA site :-?
When you go to see it make sure you do of course check the chassis plate to see if it has a correct minor million chassis number, from the photos everything looks correct for a minor million except for the fact that the rear badge seems to be made from two 1000 badges!
I don't know what sort of money should be expected for a genuine million but £9100 does seem like a lot :o

Hello Rob,
That's 'way too much money for a Morris Minor unless you are a collector and you want it as a "Trailer Queen" never to be driven except into a judging meet and back onto the trailer for the trip home. You can get a pretty fine Morris for a lot less money and enjoy the driving with less worry. I remember seeing the 20 that came to Canada arriving at BMC in Hamilton where I was working at the time. I wasn't impressed that they were anything better than the others and I didn't like the colour.

But not in the UK as to enter judging at our club events the cars have to be driven there under their own power.

Does this not belong to one of our board members? I recall a Minor Million being obtained just last year by "Ayr41" He was based in Scotland and going off his board name I would assume he is near Ayr! Very strange coincidence if there are two Millions in the Ayr area!!

Think my car was a '' Trailer Queen'' 7000 miles since 1988 . The car will be in for a shock now new front brakes and Electrics its ready to drive anywhere.
