4610 Pet Lane
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 much more!
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!!!
