MORRIS MINOR VAN - £8,250
1965 Morris Minor Van. This is the earlier model of van with the small back window, the Bluemels wire spoke steering wheel and the bronze faced speedo dial.
Properly and thoroughly restored some years ago with new wings, sills, floor pans and rear panels this van is in excellent structural condition with no welding visible (or needed) on either the chassis or any of the underbody areas and with good solid gutters. Very attractive dark green paintwork with an excellent lustre and nicely finished load area.
Recently renewed interior with new seat covers, door trims, carpets, seat belts, glove boxes, parcel tray and a new heater.
Mechanically updated with an alternator conversion, front anti roll bar, inertia reel seat belts and halogen headlights. Starts readily every time and drives very well with smooth quiet engine. Synchromesh on 2nd gear is easily beaten, however, if one changes down at too high a speed so a new gearbox (about £400 last time I bought one) would be needed if you want perfection - otherwise double de-clutch (as I do!). Four new tyres. Useful collection of spares included.
Becoming difficult to find Minor Vans in this condition now. Viewing in Leamington Spa. Call for details.
