Morris Minor Hire

Our Morris Minor in Ampleforth is nicknamed ‘Betty’. She is a delightful white 2 door Morris Minor 1000, with a red fold up roof and red interior. Dating from 1960, Betty has been restored to as-original condition. She is still equipped with old style semaphore indicators, and a has a foot operated dip switch for the headlights. However, the car also has modern flashing indicators together with uprated safety features including modern safety belts and upgraded servo-assisted brakes.

The Morris Minor is great for nostalgic tours, either for yourself or as a gift for someone else  And as a Morris Minor wedding car it will charm both the bride and groom, as well as the whole wedding party.

This Morris Minor hire car is operated in conjunction with Autism Plus, a charity supporting people with Autism. So if you are looking for things to do whilst visiting North Yorkshire, pop over to Ampleforth and pick up ‘Betty’ the Morris Minor for a fun classic car adventure. You’ll be supporting the charity at the same time.

About Autism Plus

A group of passionate parents founded Autism Plus over 30 years ago. Bound by a common cause: wanting the very best for their children who all had autism. The children had grown up together at a specialist school but now approaching adult hood, they found there was no support. Together the parents established a small community for their children to live together in the market down of Thorne, near Doncaster. Three decades on as a leading Yorkshire charity Autism Plus are empowering more people every day to achieve more than they had dared to dream was possible.

Ampleforth Plus

Ampleforth Plus is one of six social enterprise businesses set up by Autism Plus. Autism Plus enterprises offer hands on experiences and training for people with disabilities in commercial businesses.

For people who are just starting out on their journey into work or those looking for new skills and experiences in other areas, the range of enterprises offer choices in vocational and administration placements. For anyone that is unsure of what they want to do, this offers a real, valuable ‘taster’ placement into different areas of work.

The purpose of the Morris Minor Tours scheme is to support individuals to learn valeting and detailing skills as they help prepare the car for hire.
