1969 Minor pickup. 

In the workshop now, as a fill in job between others. I’m building this really for personal satisfaction, as having been involved in restoring Minor commercials for years, this one will be done to my own requirements using my own collection of genuine old stock parts rather than repro and should represent one of the most genuine original spec pickups about. For eg, it will have all the correct nuts and bolts, rather than cheap metric fasteners an will be one for the purist. Whilst I can do other pickups this one will be special as it benefits from years of collecting original parts so not something that can be easily repeated.

Whilst done for personal pleasure, and I would like to take it to a few shows myself, I have many other projects I would like to do so inevitably this one will have to make way for the next, so if anyone wishes to register an interest at this stage do get in touch.

The cab is fully restored, ready to be fitted to its excellent original BMC chassis. The intention is to build this one to as original spec as possible and we have sourced genuine original seatcovers and a rubber floor mat and a proper low compression LCV engine.

It can at this stage be finished in any colour. Its the current intention to use original type cellulose paint in one of the late factory colours, for the original look, rather than over shiny modern 2 pack, but can be changed if a more durable finish is desired.

If you are interested in a very genuine, not over restored pickup, please get in touch to discuss requirements and timescale.
