1960 BMC Morris Minor 1000 Panel / Delivery van (VIN: 0EB496589), a very rare example of a US delivery Morris Minor 1000 panel van - this Morris was sold new in CA and was used by the owner as a daily driver in college - he hand-painted the mural on the interior roof (see photos). The van remained with the original owner in CA until 2005 when it was purchased by a longtime friend of mine in Detroit as a project that never materialized. Disassembled in Michigan my buddy was planning to install a newer motor - small block Ford or an Ecoboost, a 5-spd, trans and all new electronics, lighting etc. Due to the sale of his storage building, kids, etc. he decided to part with it in February 2019. It is a project vehicle but it is 100% solid and original with *no rust* on the body or in the floors etc. It is currently in rolling condition - it needs to be reassembled as far as the motor, trans, etc. It is currently a green exterior with a light yellow interior, but the original color is believed to be an Old English or Snowberry white. The floors, doors, body panels, seats, gauges, and even the wood in the rear floor are all original to this vehicle. It comes with the original rear differential (installed), and a driveshaft, upgraded ribcase trans and an upgraded and recently completely rebuilt 1,100cc engine from a BMC engine supplier in England - all on a pallet (see photos). The alternator, radiator and water pump, carburetor, a full gasket set, extra steering wheels, 2-sets of hubcaps and other ancillary items are in boxes. The van has a disc brake conversion on the front, and the upgraded ribcase trans is the same as what was installed in an MG Midget 1275.
I have had a few people look at this and all have different ideas - modify it with all current powertrain and heat and a/c, paint it and drive it daily. Others have had the idea to get it on the road and leave the body and paint as-is. Others have had the idea to wrap it or paint it as a rolling billboard for their business. And other have said restore it back to factory specs and show it. The great thing about this is that its a clean slate. The new owner can go any direction theyd like! Parts are easily available and inexpensive from suppliers such as British Wiring, Rivergate transmission, British Auto Parts, Morris Mania, Bull Motif, Charlie Ware, etc. There are a lot of Morris Minor sedan and convertibles on the market, and even some Traveler wagons, but I cant find any panel vans advertised anywhere in the US - all are in England or Australia. This van is very rare, very original and very cool. Offered at $11,000.00 / obo. Call or text Brian @ (812) 760-5513 - Evansville, IN 47715.
