Similarly exempt from sales tax as a commercial vehicle, it sported a pressed steel grille, sliding windows and external door hinges throughout its 22-year production life. Initially powered by an 848cc four-cylinder, it could be specified with the more powerful 998cc engine from 1967 onwards (both A-series units being mated to the same 4-speed manual transmission). Benefiting from a 4”-longer wheelbase, taller rear suspension turrets and underfloor fuel tanks, the Pick-Up/Panel Van derivatives were arguably even more fun to drive than their saloon equivalents. Mini became a standalone brand during October 1969, with parent company, British Leyland, dropping the compact saloon and its derivatives from the Austin and Morris ranges, a change signified by simplified badging and a new logo. The otherwise unchanged Pick-Up could still be had in 850 or 1,000 guises. Dating from 26th February 1962, this pretty little Morris Mini Pick-Up found it’s way into the hands of our vendor in January 2011 and underwent a comprehensive and meticulous nut and bolt restoration, leaving no detail overlooked. Now very smartly-presented in Willow Green with black trim, it retains its original 848cc engine and 4-speed gearbox, and can truly be described as excellent in every area, one of the best we have ever seen. Part of our vendor’s significant collection, it’s kept safe and dry, regularly maintained, with a small history file including the Heritage Trust Certificate, and used for a bit of fun and the occasional trip to Goodwood. For collectors and enthusiasts alike, 6396 MU presents a golden opportunity to acquire a meticulously restored 1960s classic, offering more than its fair share of nostalgia. On offer from a private Collection, this Immaculately restored Morris Mini Pick-Up is about as good as you will ever find. More Details Lot 707 Bid On Lot 707
