Almost straight from the film set from ‘Heartbeat’ comes this lovely classic Morris Minor pick up. This car has recently come to us for sale and is in lovely condition throughout having gone through an extensive restoration to a very good standard.
Designed under the leadership of Sir Alec Issigonis, the Morris Minor is a British car which made its debut at the Earls Court Motor Show in 1948. Originally, the Morris was available as a two-door saloon or a two-door tourer. In 1950, a four door was introduced, which was only available for export and was the first model to have the headlights set in the wings, as opposed to low down, either side of the grille to meet the US safety standards. In 1952 another change was on the cards, with the merger of Morris’s parent company and Austin Motor Company, to form the British Motor Corporation. This is when models such as probably one of the most recognisable Minors, the Traveler, was introduced, an estate version with an Ash wood external frame for the rear structure, other than this, they remained unchanged up until the end of production in 1973.
This stunning 1971 Morris Minor Pick Up was restored a number of years ago by a UK based Morris Minor specialist, where it was fully restored, inside and out, including the engine and also a new chassis and finished in period Persian Blue. When the restoration was completed the pick up was built as a left hand drive, as it was being shipped off to the States. The Morris then spent a number of years in the States in a dry desert climate before being shipped back to the UK. Still in excellent condition, it was then converted back to right hand drive by Charles Ware’s Morris Minor Centre Ltd in Bristol. Inside the Morris is in excellent condition as you can imagine, having only covered a small amount of miles since the restoration. The seats are in excellent order with no damage to the black vinyl, and the door cards are also in good condition with the door furniture nice and bright. The pick up has been fitted with inertia Seat Belts for that added touch of safety. The bulkhead and dashboard are finished in body colour with the instrument panel sitting dead centre. There is also a CD player mounted in the lower section of the dash, with speakers mounted discreetly to the left and right under the dash. The odometer has a reading of 84,324 miles, and this beautiful little pick-up has covered under 3,000 miles in the last 11 years. It is most certainly a rare and collectable classic.
