Description:

1959 Other Makes Morris Minor 1000 --

Offered is a magnificent 1959 Morris Minor 1000 Coupe, the personal Morris of famed California Morris Specialist, the late Bruce Wyman founder of Morris Service of Redwood City, CA.. This car was restored personally by Mr. Wyman and was tastefully and professionally improved to include the larger 1275cc engine with dual SU Carburetors, cleverly installed Datsun 5 speed transmission, front disc brakes, and more reliable alternator. It is equipped with the 4.22 to 1 rear end and is running on 13 inch wheels, making it a zippy 65-75 mph freeway cruiser. Lovely repaint in blue with complimenting immaculate grey interior. Immaculate chrome and emblems, excellent glass. Working trafficators! Very few miles since final completion, but fully tested and sorted, we think he felt it was too nice to use regularly!
The car has been stored for a some months following Mr. Wyman's passing but is out now and ready to go. A good servicing would be recommended before heavy driving due to its recent period of inactivity.
This is a unique opportunity to buy a turn key California Morris held in the Wyman family for well over 30 years, mechanically improved, but very stock in appearance. Please call Chris Bock for further details at (530) 400-0540.
