1966 Morris Minor Traveller

Just two owners and 35,100 miles from new with history to prove; nicely patinated and ready to enjoy 

What a charmed life this Moggie must have led! It was supplied new by Linden Garage of Maidenhead, Berkshire, in August 1966 to a local gent, Mr M Barton, who was to keep it for the next 46 years. During this time it only covered 33,000 miles, as evidenced by no fewer than 52 old MOTs on file.

A good few invoices show routine upkeep over the years, the only bill of any note being from 1989 when the faithful Moggie underwent some light bodywork restoration which included new rear wings and jacking points, plus localised repairs to the front wings and the floorpan for the princely sum of £608. 

When Mr Barton died in 2012, the car was inherited by his godson (our vendor) who has also looked after it well, fitting a recored radiator in 2013 and using it only lightly, the odometer currently showing 35,131 miles. Garaged throughout its life, the car is said to be a reliable first-time starter with a rot-free timber frame. Although it no longer needs one, it has an MOT to April 2023 with no advisories recorded and has been starting promptly and running nicely as we have moved it around on site.

Supplied with its original green logbook, the car also retains its original driver’s handbook and Passport to Service book, an original Morris Minor sales brochure, an unused book of fuel ration coupons, a Haynes workshop manual and a set of white-on-black number plates. It also comes with a few useful spares and an indoor car cover. The Minor 1000 badge missing from the front left side of the bonnet is also present but needs a new fixing lug before it can be attached securely.

The lowest mileage Morris Minor Traveller that we have ever offered, it has a pleasing patina and now only needs a caring third owner who can continue to preserve it for future generations to enjoy.
