Every time I drive a Morris Minor I am reminded what good cars they are and how well they drive (as any Minor driver will no doubt tell you!). Alec Issigonis’ design is much more advanced than most of its competitors combining a wide track, a wheel at each corner, torsion bar independent front suspension, rack and pinion steering and good brakes – the result is a car with really good handling which is a pleasure to drive especially on country lanes where you can safely motor along at surprisingly good speeds (no doubt helped by its 1098cc engine!)
This particular 1967 Morris Traveller’s file contains 13 pages of invoices from the Morris Minor Workshop in East Sussex which add up to over £10,500 (plus £2,100 VAT) spent over the last eight years. They cover major items like a reconditioned engine, a conversion to servo operated front disc brakes, replacement of much of the body’s wooden frame and fitting of a concealed modern radio! There are also too many small items to list here but the invoices are available for inspection should you come to see the car. It also comes with a detailed pre delivery inspection checklist prepared in 2018 by the Minor Workshop and an almost complete set of MoT certificates dating back to 1979!
The result of all this work is that we have a car which looks very good and drives really well and gives the impression that it will be ideal for rallies, shows and touring holidays and is also perfectly useable as daily transport.
So if you would like to own a very sound and presentable Morris Traveller which is in thoroughly well sorted condition without looking like a concours-only show car this is quite possibly the one for you!
