I had the exact same issue with my 1932 Minor two-seater. I was heading back from the VSCC Welsh Trial in 2021 and the door lock broke when I got back in the car after a refuel. I managed to get a replacement lock on the Pre-war Minor Forum.

Hello Rick. As mentioned many years ago, I had a Morris Minor with OHC engine. It was classed as a 1930 model, but that might have been because it arrived in N.Z in that year. I seem to remember in my hunting for information, that by 1930 the side-valve engine was being used.

Now I can't be certain, but AFAIK the cars with OHC had a plain radiator surround ( and a smudge of oil because of oil leaks from the OHC high pressure system), and that the side valve cars had a center chrome or SS strip on the theirs. Your car has the centre strip.

We recently spent some time re-awakening the old Minor to test things out and see if it'd fire up or not.

It'll stay I'm sure.

One of those amazing coincidences just happened 10 minutes ago. The lady I bought it from just gave me a call out of the blue, I haven't spoken with her since we collected it all those years ago ... she doesn't follow anything on here or YT, she just came across a piece of paper that had my number on it.
