Description:

1970 Morris Minor Pickup
Reg. no. HJK 414J
Chassis no. 73512734240297
Engine no. 10V189EL63240
May 1953 saw the introduction of the pickup and van variants to the Morris Minor range, and they were designed for small businesses, although in the end many were used by larger corporations. Both the van and the pickup differed from the cars, by having a separate chassis, and they were surprisingly strong load carriers. This attractive example was first registered in Eastbourne, East Sussex and had various uses over the years, but sadly it then ended up in a scrapyard. It was then rescued by the current owner and a full restoration began in 2000-2001, much of which was carried out by East Sussex Minors. Our vendor tell us that about half of the panels are original, and all improvements that were required, have been carried out to a high standard including work to the chassis and a full re-spray. In recent years the pickup has been used for local shows winning several \'best commercial in show\' awards. It has also featured in various magazines. It is now realistically offered here with a V5c and a current MOT that expires in August 2018.
