1959 morris minor project For Sale

Morris Minor 1959 .

owned virtually from new by the same person now in his 90's it had 7000 miles on her when he bought it. We have taken it off him as he wanted to have a clear out

The car was stripped to the rolling shell you see in 1996 with the intention of a restoration. All the parts are with the car except the rear wings .

What is extraordinary is that the shell has only ever had 2 repairs a very small patch to one jacking point and one spring hanger the rest is in incredibly solid condition making this a very easy rebuild , it does need a repair to the one door a post but it is not bad the post is basically solid.The chassis, sills etc are superb and look original .We rehung the doors to make it water tight but they will require fetling to shut properly . Theres a spare bonnet also in the correct colour.The rear wings were cut off the mounting bolts need removing probably drilling out but the shell appears solid so not a big issue we dont think.

The engine is we were told by the guy that its unleaded converted and the gearbox is a gold seal reconditioned item. We have lots of paperwork but i cant confirm if the engine is rebuilt but was assured it was running perfectly when removed, it turns over ok.

The car is currently outside as pictured so we would like to see it gone sooner rather than later its only been outside for a few weeks .

The asking price is very fair at 750 as panels and labour to make a poor shell solid will come to more than that..

Viewing can be arranged to suit in fact i recommend viewing to satisfy yourself we are telling a true picture of the car.

There are 4 new wings which we will sell to the buyer on first refusal and if you want more photos of underside etc please email and i will arrange it as this listing is limited to the amount of photos we can put on.

There are some new parts like seals which come with the car. you could refit the front wings and just bolt it all together and use but she will need new rear wings to be fitted. You could say its a kit morris minor so if you can wield spanners but not weld this is the car for you .

We can do the welding required for 150.00 if required.
