The Morris Minor was a British economy car that made its debut at the Earls Court Motor Show on 20th September 1948. Designed under the leadership of Alec Issigonis, over 1.3 million examples were manufactured from 1948-1971. Initially available as a two-door saloon and convertible, the range was subsequently expanded to include a four-door saloon in 1950 and wood-framed estate, The Traveller, plus the panel van and pick-up truck variants in 1952.
This charming Morris Minor Van was registered in March 1969. She is not only distinctive because of her sign writing, this Morris Minor advertises the famous ‘Shoulder of Mutton’ pub in Playhatch, but because of her tremendous condition. The quality is borne out by the invoices for works and parts totalling in excess of £8,000 spent during the current owner’s tenure. We are informed that when requested, the 998cc engine, started immediately and ran smoothly. Presented with a V5C registration document, this MoT test exempt Morris Minor Van is simply delightful. Offered to auction without reserve, the vendor advises us that this van drives well.
