RARE MORRIS PICKUP, 1098 CC 4 CYL, TOYOTA 5 SPEED MANUAL, FRONT DISCS, FUN TRUCK
When you run into something this unique and affordable, your imagination starts to go into overdrive. This 1958 Morris Minor 1000 1/4 Ton Pickup has a cool look on the outside, custom comfort on the inside, and upgraded drivetrain. So it seems like the perfect vehicle to do everything from be the support vehicle for you British exotic to just being a fun presentation all on its own.
If you're British, then this is a pure nostalgia machine (and if you're not this is just a very cool presentation.) The Morris Minor is the car that helped put Britain on wheels, even before the Mini. The pickup is an interesting factory variation that really helped bring back business after WWII. But more than just history is what attracts you to this one the Delph Blue has a nice modern shine, and those minilite-style wheels are always a nice touch on these British classics. And with the liner paint surrounding the real-wood truck bed, this one can still be everything from your weekend chore friend, to one of the most attention-grabbing business vehicles around.
Inside is a great mixture of vintage and upgrades. It starts with the two classic-style bucket seats that have been given a cool blue and white two-tone upholstery. We love the classic banjo-style steering wheel with Morris center cap, and there's even the original Smiths speedometer on display. And on the more practical side, you have an upgraded gauge trio right in front of you to always keep the best eye on the motor.
Under the hood is a 1098cc motor that that looks nice with its bright valve cover and correct green block. This A-Series engine is a well-known and widely used powerplant that found a home in plenty of British vehicles. It's the backbone of English motoring, which makes it quite robust and there's easy parts availability. When matched with upgraded Toyota five-speed manual transmission, the performance can be quite nippy. Add in front disc brakes, light steering, and modern radial tires, and this quite a fun time in a very compact package.
A turn-key stand-out vehicle like this is rarely so affordable, so you need to hurry to catch this deal. Call today!!!
