This "AS NEW Morris Minor 1000 Traveller was first registered on 1st March 1968 and has been the subject of a total restoration/rebuild by Morris Minor specialist Charles Ware's Morris Minor Centre in Bristol.
Charles Ware's rebuilds start at £26,450 for their basic traveller with any personal specifications and upgrades at additional cost. The total rebuild cost of this car came to almost £38,000 including a fully rebuilt 1275cc MG Midget Engine by Swiftune' of Ashford in Kent providing 90bhp @ £6,000 plus a reconditioned Ford Sierra Type 9 Five Speed Gearbox by Ford specialist BGH Geartech in Cranbrook, Kent.
The car is finished in Old English White with new Red half leather Seats with head restraints, new Red carpets, new Door trims, new Headlining, new Ash Woodwork, all new Chromework, new lights, new Glass, new Disc Brake conversion + Brake Servo, all new Brake pipes & hoses, Polybushed Suspension, uprated Drive Shafts, new Brake & Clutch Hydraulics, new uprated Radiator and all cooling hoses, new wiring looms, Alternator conversion, Classic Suspension with a front Anti-Roll bar and Shock Absorber conversion, new 'Maniflo' Exhaust System, Electronic Ignition, all new plug leads, coil and other electrics, electric Fuel Pump, new 5.5J 'Weller' steel wheels with new Toyo 310 tyres, plus it has been fully waxoyled.
It is impossible to list everything as 'everything' is new on this car and it is certainly better than a new Morris Traveller would have been when it rolled off the production lines in 1968.
Since the rebuild was completed in September 2015 it has only covered 398 miles and has been stored in the owner's centrally heated garage. This traveller is without doubt one of the best examples in the country if not The Best and it represents exceptional value for money at this price, being £8,000 less than it cost the owner to have built!
It will be sold with a new MOT and it will come with our own 6 Month Mechanical Warranty.
We do have over 50 photo's of this car including restoration photo's and all invoices and paperwork, so please email us if you would like to see more.
This is a fabulous original car, a genuine Lowlight with just 60,800 miles recorded, with its past owner for over 30 years, still in its original colour and retaining its original upholstery and registration.....
