This is a rare 1960 Morris Minor pickup truck built for power and speed. Very few Morris Minor pickup trucks were imported to the U.S. from overseas because of the federal governments 25% tariff in the 60's which became known as the chicken tax.
This particular Morris Minor pickup was built for street racing. The body is solid original sheet metal. The exterior is a custom gray with purple on the hood, top, and edges of the bed. The paint is professional with no visible flaws. Because the owner is over 6 feet tall, he expanded the cab by moving it back 5 inches and welding in bolts and metal.
Engine is a stroker 385 cid with 475 hp, 2 4 barrel 600 Edlebrock carbs, tunnel ram. The 350 Turbo transmission was built for racing with shift kit etc. Rear end is a Chrysler 3:43 gear posi unit. The fuel cells and battery are in the back. Other features are a full chassis, full roll cage, wheelie bars, and racing seats with 5 point harness seat belts. The steering wheel is original. PLEASE NOTE: The seat covers are currently being made and will be installed in the near future. They are the same material and color combination as the door panels.
This 1960 Morris Minor custom pickup starts and runs with powerful performance. It can be run on street fuel. It has an awesome sound that is radical, but not too much! You will be King of the Street Rod show in this unique ride!
