1983 Morris 575 Van

No Reserve

Stalled restoration of a rare 2-owner van with low indicated mileage of 78,622 in storage for many years

A rare to see van, dating from July 1983 it has been in storage since 1998 (when it was last taxed too) when it was the subject of an insurance write-off recorded as category-D. Our vendor has had the van in his shed for many years intending to complete someone else's stalled restoration, but never got round to it. 

The van was running when it arrived, but we have not managed to start it since, although the engine turns over. The driver's seat has collapsed and the bodywork requires completion and painting but fundamentally it looks like a sound project.

As a 575 model, the payload capacity was a reputed 10CWT but it might need some work before its used in anger once again!

Showing just 78,622 miles it looks to be a worthy project and is offered here at No Reserve, the highest bid takes it home.
