Postby Greenie » Fri Sep 13, 2019 6:32 pm

Hi folks,
So proud of Eric, my husband, he has worked so hard on this pickup and we have shared our story with you. Have been grateful for all advice given, and pleased you have followed our story. Eric will be 83 soon and I cannot give the accolade he deserves, I'm I'm awe, so all I can say now is'
Here is Norman, built October 20th 1970
Rebuilt 2019
Now runs after 40 years of silence,
Thank you Marilyn greenies wife

Should you see patches, they are reflections of clouds, garden gravel reflections, our Norman is a good honest Workhorse and we hope you share our joy and happiness that yet another Morris Pickup 1098cc in original condition is back on our roads,
Marilyn greenies wife
And Eric

Yes, looking smart. Glad you’ve kept the two part wooden floor, a lot of people don’t bother and throw in one large piece. If you’re looking to acquire the spare wheel holding bolt, here’s a picture with measurements.

Oh chuckle like that, but think we all related via Morris Minor owners whether they are cars, vans, travellers, pickup, one big family.
Its great on here love it.
Just one more thing to do and thats try and arrange to see the original owners wife, whom was very sad to see Norman in the state he was, need to get a bouquet for her and take her down memory lane, hopefully in november... Love to all Marilyn

Hi ,
Sorry to hear you've both been unwell but … pleased to hear that you're now back in action.
Better take a box of tissues with you , when you visit Mrs Curley , I'm sure it will be an emotional day
for all concerned.
We like stories with a good outcome / happy ending ( both mechanical and emotional ! ).
Enjoy the pick up this Spring.
Bob
