Designed under the eagle eye of Sir Alex Issigonis, most famous for the BMC Mini, the Morris Minor first made its appearance at the 1948 Earls Court Motor Show. Initially available as a two-door saloon and tourer / convertible, the Minor (built between 1948 and 1972) saw development during 3 phases in the cars life: the MM ('48-53) with it's low-lights, split-screen front window and side valve engine; the series II ('52-56) saw the introduction of the 'A' series engine and in '52 the estate or Traveller version was introduced with its external wooden structured body being fitted to the front (saloon body) at the MG plant in Abingdon as the Morris Cowley plant could no longer cater for body-on-frame built vehicles. In 1956 the Minor 1000 was introduced, the two-piece front screen now being replaced by a curved one-piece windscreen, an increase in engine capacity to 948cc, the original semaphore indicators now being changed for the more modern front / rear flasher units and in 1962, although retaining the Minor 1000 name, the car saw some of its biggest changes with an improved 'A' series engine, improved braking / gearbox and improved interior styling.

Sold new in September 1962 and finished in Rose Taupe, with contrasting red Duotone interior, we're delighted to offer this wonderful Traveller. With only 3 previous keepers and the having been owned by the same owner for the last 7 years she has been lovingly restored and features many original NOS parts, whilst retaining her original woodwork, which remains in fantastic condition. In addition she comes comes with a great history file too, with invoices for works carried out, MOT certificates and its wonderful to find such an example that comes with an original Owners Manual and 'Schedule of Repair charges' too.....if only a 12k miles service cost the same today as it did back in the 60's, less than £6!!

Mechanically in excellent order and having traveled less than 2000 miles in the last 10 years this Traveller is joy to drive. With the smallest amount of 'choke' needed on start-up the 948cc engine starts easily and pulls sweetly through all gears and the Traveller will happily sing along down country lines, the exhaust giving its unique 'waspy' rasp during gear-changes.

Often a weak point on many Morris Minor rebuilds we're delighted to say the panel gaps are consistent and even around the car. Her Rose Taupe bodywork is wonderful, free from any blemishes, the chrome and paint having a wonderful lustrous shine and the Travellers woodwork, is in first class order, all original, maintained impeccably over the years .... without being too cliche, it's aged like a fine wine! On opening the door / tail-gate, the driver and passengers are met with a highly original interior, in wonderful condition with all the switches, latches having a quality feel and one can't help but smile watching the indicator stalk end 'flash' in unison with the exterior flasher lamps. Her interior features the correct Duotone and original material, fitted to cars between '62-'64, she has the 'luxury' of a heater / blower and despite being relatively small by modern car standards the Traveller actually offers a good amount of interior space with a bright and airy feel, the ideal classic for young & old and ready for day trips, weekends away or just enjoying as she is.

One of the nicest Morris Minor Travellers we've seen, the car comes with a great history file, her original Owners Handbook, a workshop manual and will be fully serviced and MOT'd ahead of delivery. A delight to drive, well cared for, easy to maintain and in beautiful condition this Morris Minor Traveller offers a wonderful opportunity to enjoy classic British motoring, we know if you see her, you'll fall in love with her too.
