First registered in July 1961, this appealing Morris Minor Pickup comes with a photographic record of its body restoration and benefits from original specification leather seats and door cards. Fitted with the correct Banjo steering wheel and directional flashing indicators, it also wears Firestone F 560 155 X 14 Tyres all round. A new hood and hood sticks cover the bed. Finished in dark green with black interior, the current recorded mileage stands at 60,395. The property of the vendor for the past four years, it is accompanied by a Swansea V5c showing eight former keepers.

Closed van and open flat-bed ("pickup") versions of the Minor were built from 1953 until the end of production. They were designed for commercial use with small businesses, although many were also used by larger corporations. Both the van and the pickup differed from the monocoque construction of the Saloon and Traveller variants by having a separate chassis. They also differed in details such as telescopic rear dampers, stiffer rear leaf springs and lower-ratio differentials to cope with heavier loads.
