NEC Classic: Mini wins Car of The Year

Published 17 November 2013

Jason Field has won this year's Classic car of The Year at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor show at the NEC in Birmingham. The 1960 Morris Mini-Minor was built in Jason's home town of Oxford at the iconic Cowley Morris works and is one of several classic Minis owned by himself and his wife Tanya.

The Mini saw off competition from a Jowett Javelin, a Hillman Imp, a pre-war Morris Minor and a Sunbeam Alpine. Jason said 'It's unbelievable that I've won.

'It's just sinking it now,' He added. 'When it got down to the final five and I read the stories associated with the other cars I thought 'I'll never win' but it's the car I always wanted. Of all the cars here, Ferraris, Porsches, whatever, this is my ultimate car. To win this has been phenomenal, absolutely phenomenal. I think I need a beer!'

The baby-blue Mini is truly stunning, with some wonderful period details included, such as the picnic basket on the back seat and a full set of British Motor Corporation road maps.
