The Morris Minor Traveller is the automotive equivalent of the Tudor half-timbered house and it is only a matter of time before English Heritage has them all declared National Treasures to be preserved for future generations.
The early history of this January 1967 Traveller is not known, but it’s had a lot of attention and money lavished on it in more recent times.
This little corker, with unusual but striking black coachwork with contrasting and very smart oxblood interior was treated to £1,142 worth of work at Minor specialist Charles Ware of Wiltshire in 2015 which included a new alternator, electronic ignition, electric windscreen washers, Halogen headlights (much improved over the Minor originals which are like candles in jam jars!), the fitting of a brake servo and a new master cylinder.
Another visit to the above in 2016 saw a further £1,300 spent including an MOT and requisite chassis repairs along with other mechanical works. More recently, £346 was spent on brake cylinders, pipes, fluid, a leaf spring plus a good dose of underseal with another £300 spent on paint rectification and new battery in 2018.
The end result is a very smart Traveller that would appear to be in fine and eminently usable condition. The MOT history shows that the car has covered only 8,000 miles in the past fifteen years with the added bonus of a current MOT running until September 2020 with no advisories recorded – what more might the avid and potential/wishful/hopeful Traveller owner want?
