1971 Morris Minor Pick-up Pickup For SaleI bought this car in Paris. It was being used by it's owner at weekends for odd jobs around his estate. Prior to that it had spent some time in the south of France with a Morris Minor collector. It originally hails from Essex before being exported to France in about 2007. There are a number of French MOT's in the history along with some invoices for work done whilst in France.
In order to re-register it here I have had to do some work to it. I've had it MOT'd and now have a V5 in my name with its original number plate. A small part of the front chassis has needed to be plated and welded. I have had this done for the MOT and have had the advisory corrosion area welded too. The top engine mount has been renewed, it has a new period correct washer bottle, the seat bases have been re-foamed and new webbing fitted. The rear suspension was a bit saggy so it now has new rear springs and bushes and a new universal joint on the prop shaft.
The car is a genuine pickup not a cut down van. I've applied for a Heritage Certificate but it has yet to come through. It's a hoot to drive and really attracts attention, I am always getting told, with great affection "we used to have one of those"!
The MOT runs out on the 4th April 2018 and it qualifies for Historic car tax. The body is in rust free condition but has some areas that would need improving. It is easy to see that the floor plans have had some repair but it is all sound. The paint is suffering a little with age but is presentable.
Always open to sensible offers!
