Morris Minor Traveller 1970 1098cc Fine Example
Arguably the fondest regarded of all post war saloons, the Alex Issigonis- designed Morris Minor must rate as the most successful post war -cars to date. The Traveller Estate version first appeared in 1953 and even today itís equally at home tootling around the country lanes or even cutting a dash down the Kensington High Street.
Powered initially by the existing 918cc four cylinder unit, the capacity was finally increased to 1098cc being the A series engine in 1962 along with the much improved synchromesh gearbox.
Despite the many upgrades the final Minor remained recognisably as the same car from the 1948 original by which time more than 1.5 million Minors of all types had been sold.
This lovely heart warming example that we have here was extensively re-furbished some years ago by a well known Minor specialist as one of their own cars. Supplied new by King and Harper Cambridge BMC main dealers 'original sale invoice available' and has remained in the Cambs area all its life. Finished in Trafalgar Blue with contrasting pale blue upholstery and matching carpets. The car has benefited from four new steel wings in the past, and the all important timbers have clearly received attention and present in fine condition.
