cluster. The interior was redesigned in 1984, and featured a whole new
dashboard layout, new steering wheel design, and new centre console
design, the switches around the
instrument panel were also redesigned at this time. This car is finished
in the very distinctive colour of Tornado Red and comes with the
optional Black Leather interior. The car remains in very good condition
having benefited from a body respray some time ago and a recent engine
rebuild and mechanical overhaul completed by marque specialist The Quattro Workshop. There is a large history file full of
old invoices and MOT's and even the original sales invoice from 1989

TRAFALGAR BLUE. £9,995.
really nice Morris Minor 1000 van was first registered 1st March 1972
and is the rarer 8cwt model and it must be one of the last Minor vans
registered. The lovely paintwork in Trafalgar Blue looks great with the
cream wheels fitted with the chrome trim rings. Inside the van the seats
have been replaced with some comfy bucket seats and it has been fitted
with harness style seat belts. The original seats come with the van
should the new owner wish to fit them. Under the bonnet is a bit special
with a freshly rebuilt 1275cc engine and rebuilt gearbox from an MG
midget with twin carbs and a rather throaty side exit exhaust. The
engine has only just been fitted so a running in period would be
advised. It certainly sounds and goes a lot better than standard and is a
hoot to drive. There is an original workshop manual, drivers handbook
and sales brochure along with some receipts and MOT's in the file. It
has also been fitted with an 81 sound machine maker and a very loud
Klaxon horn that makes people get out of the way! The van is now 47
years old so is Road Tax and MOT exempt.

the car was built in November 1972 so it is now 47 years old and is

black interior the car really stands out from the crowd and looks just
great. The interior is excellent and the seats have been recovered as
original. The file also has some invoices for the last owner of some 9
years and 24 old MOT's going back to 1987 show that the car has done
only 20,000 miles in the last 32 years and would suggest that the total
mileage of only 42,500 miles is correct. The car has had recently a new
mohair soft top, re-chromed bumpers and the wheels blasted and painted.

overhaul, fuel pipes, spark plugs, starter motor, wheel bearings, fuel
