This 1965 Morris Minor utility van gets instant attention wherever
it goes. So we're not sure if it's the perfect classic for someone
who wants something unique at the car shows, or someone who needs
an interesting business vehicle that also utilizes cargo room. Then
again, at this affordable price, it's ideal for all of that and
The Morris Minor is the car that put Britain on wheels, and the
cargo van version was the one that really got business moving. So
we bet you can just imaging putting your company name on the side,
or maybe you just want to make up a cool race team and create a fun
livery. But this one already looks pretty cool even without
anything additional. British cars do dark green paint the best, and
this one even has a nice metallic element that pops in the
sunshine. And speaking of popping, the neon-like green used for all
that pinstriping and the wheels has a bold appearance that still
harmonizes with the overall look. And everything from the curvy
fenders that extend into the doors, to the two-piece wheel covers
gives this little Morris a big dose of vintage style.
The green continues on the inside with the exterior-matching dash
and even plush green carpeting. It all has a very classic look with
the banjo-style steering wheel with Morris center cap, toggle
switches, and prominently in the middle is the large Smiths gauge.
But this one was also upgraded for better comfort and use. That's
why you have high-back bucket seats, a full set of Stewart Warner
auxiliary readouts, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input to plug
in your phone. And while this was updated to be more inviting, the
best feature may still be the wide double cargo doors that give you
access to all that practical space in the rear.
The engine bay has a clean look and a classic presentation, but
it's a bit different from what British car fans are used to seeing.
This is actually a 1397cc Nissan motor that you would know better
from hardy cars like the Datsun 210 series. It's a bit larger than
anything Morris ever offered, and it's quite a smooth runner today.
The upgrade won't make this little van a speed demon, but the added
power from a reliable source is quite appreciated. Plus, the
control of the four-speed manual transmission and more modern
Copper tires keeps the driving experience lively.
It's a rarity to see a Morris Minor Van in the USA, and this one
has been done to look sharp and run strong. So you know you need to
hurry if you want to take it home. Call today!!!
