Lot C538

Description:

1968 Morris 1000 Van
Reg. no. VPH 119G
Chassis no. MAV5249547
Engine no. Unknown
The success of the Minor as a passenger car meant it was a logical step to introduce commercial variants, and this duly happened in 1953 with the launch of both van and pick-up versions. To cope with the more strenuous work these cars were expected to perform, they were given full chassis instead of the semi-monocoque construction of the passenger cars. Together with the Traveller estate, the commercials were the last UK-built Minors to end production, in April 1971.
This 1968 van, a storage find about which little is known, is a worthwhile project. As with all Minors, parts are readily available; indeed, for the commercials even entire new chassis’ are available. The engine turns over freely, and the van comes with a V5C.
