Fancy a vintage runaround as well as a project for the next few months? This Morris Minor 1000 is on eBay for a modest price and no reserve.
If you fancy the idea of pottering round country roads this summer, we reckon this 1968 Morris Minor will be the perfect car for the job.
At first glance, it might well have just rolled off the production line. But this Morris 1000 split screen car is well over 50 years old – and it could be yours right now.
Seeing as the sun is out, we've tried to find something suitable for our eBay treasure today – and we think this 1950s Morris Minor Convertible Splitscreen fits the bill perfectly.
It's a gem of a motor, built in 1954 as a convertible (not a later custom job) and still going strong, perhaps thanks to the amount of money paid out by the current owner. Since he/she bought it in 202, they've spent £8,000 on doing the car up, including chassis restoration, a new hood and Newton Commercial half-hide front seats and general maintenance.
It's got an unleaded 948cc engine and an 'old English white' colour scheme, with the only fault being a 'hairline crack in the windscreen'. But replacement glass is included in the sale. Fancy it? Bidding is at £2,500. A shot of the interior over the page.
A relic from a bygone era, this 1980 Morris Marina has had just one lady owner, with that owner driving it just 32,000 miles in 30 years. That's likely to be correct too, as the paperwork has 23 service stamps in the original booklet.
According to the seller, the 'velour upholstery is in perfect order' as are the original carpets and headlining. The car was also 'Zeibarted' from new, with the rust protector doing its job for 30 years. The odd touch up of paint, but nothing serious to look out for. The seller is even willing to deliver it…for a price.
It must be a collector's car of sorts because I've seen a procession of Marinas from a local club driving about my particular area. If you want to join your local club, bidding starts at just £50.
Always fancied yourself as Postman Pat? Well, now you can get the van, specifically a Morris Minor Royal Mail van from the 1950s.
It actually dates from 1956, completely rebuilt and restored, even with a new engine to improve performance over the original. It even comes with all its history, right from the days it was doing the rounds through all the owners up to the current one.
See the full write-up for exactly what you get, but suffice to say, no detail has been overlooked in the renovation. Right now, the price is £870 – you should get that back in movie and TV rental fees.
