Description

"The Morris Minor was a British economy car that made its debut at the Earl’s Court Motor Show in September 1948. Designed under the leadership of Alec Issigonis, over 1.3 million examples were manufactured from 1948 to 1971. Initially available as a two-door saloon and convertible, the range was subsequently expanded to include a four-door saloon in 1950, and a wood-framed estate, the Traveller, plus the panel van and pick-up variants in 1952.
This charming Pick-up was registered in 1955 and is presented in silver with a cream interior. This rare early split screen Morris Pick-up has been subject to an extensive restoration and presents very well indeed perhaps better than when new. During the refurbishment, which is photographically detailed in the history file that accompanies this car, the body was stripped and repaired before a full respray. A new canvas cover was made and fitted, with further works including a side exhaust and general servicing. The vendor states the engine starts on the button it pulls well and is leak free. This Pick-up is presented to auction with a V5C registration document and MoT certificate until August 2022."
