1958 Morris Minor 1000 1/4 Ton Pickup in Fort Worth Texas

 Vehicle Description
When you run into something this unique and affordable, your imagination starts to go into overdrive. This 1958 Morris Minor 1000 A1/4 Ton Pickup has a cool, custom look on the outside, bespoke comfort on the inside, and a little extra power under the hood matched to a quick-shifting 5-speed manual transmission. So, if youre looking for a British legend thats been taken up to another level, coupled with the added utility of a pickup truck, then this custom Morris might just be the right vintage ride for you. br / brbr If youre British, then this is a pure nostalgia machine (and if youre not this is just a very cool presentation.) After all, whats more distinct than a Morris 1000 truck customized to look like a vintage streetrod version of the Chevrolet SSR? And its not just the vintage Austin Healey racing livery on the side that youll enjoy, because the dynamic front end and cool utility bed out back work together to form one of the coolest little trucks weve ever featured. They got the details right, mixed in with a few vintage custom pieces that really put it over the top, including a black louvered hood, fender-mounted side mirrors, an Impala front grille that was custom fitted, and a blacked-out chin splitter below the chrome bumper up front. The vivid Metallic Blue paint looks great on the uniquely shaped sheetmetal on this Morris truck, presented as a driver quality finish that still shines up great. And although there are some signs of use throughout, the contrast of the black hood and big splitter up front, along with the bright chrome in the Impala-sourced grille and front bumper, all work together to give this pickup some awesome curb appeal. All the right pieces are there a?" front the Morris badges up front, to the heavy-duty bed out back that includes wood slats in the center. With all these cool features complementing the classic Morris styling, this is a supercool little pickup that turns heads everywhere it goes. br / brbr While these trucks were originally built to be utilitarian pieces with rather baren interiors, this one adds comfort and a bit of flair on top of its form and function. The dual white-and-blue vinyl bucket seats make the most of the passenger space with their low-backed comfort, and the seatbelts even coordinate with the trucks chrome pieces. Even though its a British machine, theres no reason to fret because this puppy is left-hand drive, and ahead of the driver is a new set of Equus gauges imbedded inside a beautiful white bezel. Theres also a matching white bezel covering the glove compartment to the right, and the builders left the original center-stack gauge in place, giving the blue dash a really cool look that melds new parts with old stock very cohesively. That cool steering wheel that youve probably already noticed is custom-made, and it matches the shift knob atop the shifter for the 5-speed manual. The controls are laid out nicely in the center of the dash, theres a durable rubber mat below protected with heavy-duty floor mats, and the white headliner and door panels add a touch of sophistication inside this sporty cab. br / brbr The engine bay is another place where British car fans will find something to love. Long gone is the BMC A-series Minor 1000 motor a?" aptly named for its small 948cc displacement - replaced by a spirited 1275cc MG block thats been punched and overbored to 1310ccs. Lively and powerful, it turns the lightweight pickup into an actual weekend hauler, not just a wheezing grocery getter. The 1.3-liter is larger than anything BMC ever supplied originally, and now it is also fed by a single SU carburetor setup and cooled with a large radiator up front that has an added electric fan, so you can feel confident taking it on the road. A custom driveshaft was engineered to marry the block to a Toyota 5-speed manual transmission, making this drivetrain not only incredibly fun to exercise, but its virtually bulletproof too. Shiny 15-inch VTO wheels are expensive pieces that finish off the sporty looking truck, and theyre wrapped with 185/60/15 radials with plenty of grip. br / brbr Its a rarity to see a Morris Minor pickup in the USA, and this one has such an affordable price. So you know you need to hurry if you want to take it home. Call today!!!br/br/
