1.3 Mosquitos: ’67 Morris Minor Pickup
What? A factory pickup! Read on. We love prototype and project code names. The TR4 was referred to as the Zest so it shouldn’t surprise you that the Morris small car prototype was called the Mosquito. Thankfully, the brainchild of Sir Alec Issigonis was given the proper English name – Minor. It is often referred to as the British Beetle. They sold over a million of them worldwide. Unfortunately, there aren’t that many Minors left. And there aren’t many Minor pickups anywhere. This one is restored with a recent coat of Almond Green. It has a new British canvas cover too. The drivetrain is shared with other BMC products like the Sprite and Midget. The seller is asking $18,000 and that sounds like a lot of money except you won’t find another around here quite as well done. Click here for the listing.
