1969 Austin 8cwt Pick Up 1098cc. Antelope Beige with Tan upholstery. With Austin and Morris both being part of BMC, the Minor-based Morris commercials were also marketed as the Austin 6cwt and Austin 8cwt with a closed van and open pick-up version of the Minor being built from 1953 until the end of production in 1973. They were designed for commercial use with small businesses in mind, although many made their way to larger corporations. The van version was popular with the Post Office with the early version of these (to around 1956) having rubber front wings, to cope with the sometimes unforgiving busy situations in which they were expected to work. Both the van and the pick-up differed from the monocoque construction of the Saloon and Traveller variant by having a separate chassis. They also differed in details such as telescopic rear dampers, stiffer rear leaf springs and lower-ratio differentials to cope with the heavier loads.This stunning pick up has been fully rebuilt to a very high standard, a new high quality chassis, all metalwork excellent, rebuilt engine and gearbox (fully overhauled) and rebuilt axle and suspension. The original seats and door cards have been re-fitted along with a new rear tonneau cover completing the look of this lovely Austin. The 1098cc ‘A’-series engine ran exceptionally well during our road test, starting on the button and running smoothly and quietly. The gearbox and brakes operated exactly as they should. Although now MOT exempt a new MOT will be applied upon sale for your peace of mind. The whole concept of purchasing a light commercial for private classic motoring combined with its advertising potential is one we have enjoyed for many years and proved to be an enormous success. Without doubt the most economical and successful form of advertising known to man! Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted.
