MINOR 1962-64 "DUOTONE"
For the October 1961 Motor Show in London, BMC introduced a much face lifted range and amongst many modifications to the body, the interior design was completely changed. The 1960's new pastel range of colours Cherokee Red, Blue Grey and Porcelain Green were totally new additions. (Remember this was the era of the swinging sixties and flower power!!!) To these colours was added a heavily grained Beige material call "Duotone". This material was sewn between the base colours to create this "Duotone " effect. This concept was used on all Deluxe models, but standard models only had the main colour.
The dash board was also altered, consequently the shape of the glove boxes was different to previous cars as well as having a chrome strip around the protruding edge of the box. At this time the Travellers were supplied with a black fibreboard panel under the rear load area to hide the spare wheel. No doubt it was intended to hide all the rubbish we tend to gather in our cars as well.
