Lot 1974

Description:

1967 Morris Minor Traveller
Reg. no. LOR 196F
Chassis no. M/AW5D1198232
Engine no. Unknown
Introduced in 1952 on the basis of the already successful Morris Minor saloon, the Minor Traveller, like the larger Oxford and Isis estates, famously used an ash frame for the rear section – this made the cars instantly distinctive, as this practice was dying out – only coach built shooting brakes followed a similar philosophy, and these were hardly common! The traveller, in contrast, sold in great numbers until production ended in 1971, and is still a fairly common sight today. Their success was no surprise; the already excellent Minor, with its superb handling, economy and reliability, was given an extra dimension of practicality – you can get a surprising amount in a Traveller when the seats are folded down! Today, as with all Minors, there is a vast world of parts and upgrades that mean they can still realistically be used daily – and how many classics can you say that about?
This 1967 Traveller was restored to a very high standard in 2013 by Minor experts, Charles Ware’s Morris Minor Centre. The ash frame was replaced, the interior was retrimmed, new floor pans were fitted together with new chrome and new panels where required, and the car was completely resprayed inside and out. For ease of use, various sensible modifications have been fitted – more modern front seats, servo-assisted front disc brakes, electronic ignition, halogen headlights… the list goes on. This must be one of the most highly-specified and most useable Minors currently available, while retaining that olde-England charm that has made the Minor Traveller a national icon. The car comes with various bills relating to the restoration that total in excess of £20,500, a full list of the work carried out, plus a V5c and an MOT until May next year.
