1961 728UYP MORRIS MINOR 1000 VAN

Exceptional example of the iconic Morris van; indicating only 64,000 miles; total rebuild in 2017; recently serviced

Cracking little Minor van in the best of all colours (Sage Green), fitted with a new chassis and the subject of a major restoration in March 2017.

There is no real history with this van but that seems of little importance since it underwent a full restoration in 2017. Underpinning it all is a new Alex Wills chassis and some quality workmanship – it is virtually a brand new body, too. There is no paperwork to detail the rebuild but it looks like someone did a pretty thorough job and the overall effect is impressive.

The rear section is of fibreglass, which should appeal to someone who wants the van to stay looking as smart as it does today.
The vendor has had it serviced recently and also fitted two new rear tyres. This is one smart Morris and would be ideal for anyone with a small business looking for a practical load-lugger that isn’t just another white van, would be a stand-out promotional tool (and there are tax incentives worth considering) or just a perfect classic run-around...

Bidders are advised that it has been brought to our attention that the original donor vehicle may be a late 1960s Morris rather than originally a 1961 model.
