You don’t have to own a Labrador and a tweed jacket to drive a Morris Traveller, but it helps.
It’s not often that ‘practical’, ‘safe’, and ‘comfortable’ can also be used alongside ‘fun’ to describe the same vehicle, but when that vehicle is a Morris Traveller it all makes sense. The Morris Minor Woodie is something of a national treasure amongst classic cars and rightly so, in our view. Easy to work on, fabulous spares back up, commodious without being gargantuan and that distinctive exhaust note on the over-run……
This 1966 Traveller has been owned by the vendor and his wife since 2006 and a jolly good time they have had with it too. Used mainly during the summer months and a regular visitor to classic car shows, it even made it to the Goodwood Revival in 2014 taking its place as an extra in the greatest show on classic car Earth.
The vendor reports that the car is in good order and nice driving condition. It is ready to use or improve and will appeal to the buyer who is looking for a ready-to go car which could be improved rather than a full-on restoration.
In fact, the car was restored, in the 1990s, with details and photographs on file showing that the work – including replacement of much of the ash frame – was to a high standard. The car is currently without an MOT, but it is expected that it will have one by the time of the sale to go with the 13 past MOT certificates that come with the car.
