1963 Morris 1000 Traveller
Dry stored for some years; for light re-commissioning; offered for sale due to ill health; thought to have been with our vendor since new
This traveller was first registered in August 1963, and we understand our vendor has owned it since then. Due to ill health, the car is being offered for sale via his solicitors and unfortunately at the time of writing, no paperwork has been found. It is only showing 40,700 miles, which may well be correct, but can not be guaranteed due to the lack of recorded history.
We can see online though that there has been no change of registered keeper since 1963 and understand that the car was regularly used up until 2017, which was when it last passed an MOT.
A Series 5 model, it has the slightly more powerful 1,098cc engine but also identifies as the deluxe variant and therefore inside the almond green body are the original duo-tone green and white seats.
Overall, the car shows some signs of age, although we understand it has been stored inside most of its life and the vulnerable woodwork looks pretty sound. The underside appears to have been waxoyled too. The bulkhead, the dash, the parcel shelf, the front seats, the flooring all appear to be largely unaffected by age and look very presentable. The only real damage is to one of the rear wings which looks like it might have had a disagreement with a garage door, but this could be restored without too much difficulty.
The owner has not driven 284 YKL for a few years, so although we have had it running briefly while in our care, it will need some attention to the clutch, which currently does not release (possibly the reason for the damaged wing) and certainly a new battery etc…
This is a very honest little traveller, which will need some light re-commissioning, but would be a perfectly useable and enjoyable little motor car following a good once over.
