This 1960 Morris Minor 1000 pickup has a cool look on the outside,
custom comfort on the inside, and an all-around sharp style. But
then you look under the hood. It's got a hot Italian twin-cam
motor! And you have a five-speed, four-wheel disc brakes, and
nimble steering to enjoy it to the fullest.
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. And with the bed 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. But there's more going
on here. The British Racing Green paint is a great sporty color and
those minilite-style wheels hint at the added fun you can have with
this one all on its own.
The interior is a great mixture of vintage and upgrades. It starts
with the two classic-style bucket seats that are now finished in
supple leather. The vintage-style dash still keeps the center
gauges, but now you have a full Classic Instruments gauges package.
And just below that is an R134a air conditioning system (it may
just need a recharge to blow ideally cold again.) Plus, the
wood-rimmed sports steering wheel and low shifter get you ready for
some driving fun.
The engine bay is a terrific upgrade that still keeps this classic
true European. It's a twin-cam motor, and the logo on the top leads
us to believe it was a 1.8-liter borrowed from a Fiat 124 Spider.
So you'll love it for its beautiful style and wonderful revving
nature. And you get to take the best advantage of it thanks to an
upgrade to a five-speed manual transmission. The light/nimble
steering of the original Morris remains, and now the feeling is
enhanced further with wide modern tires and four-wheel disc
Every once in a while you get a chance to see a small car with a
lot of personality, and so this Minor must be Herbie the Love Bug's
devilish cousin. It's a one-of-a-kind that won't disappoint. Call
