Reluctantly for sale in Manchester is my Morris Minor 1000 Traveller, 1967 F reg with low mileage - researched and believed genuine. 1098 engine, 4 speed gearbox. Rose Taupe colour with Cherokee Red interior.
It's been my semi-daily driver for 5 years before which it had four owners, some of whom I have received information from about its background. I bought it from Charles Ware's Morris Minor Centre in late 2013, so it's a high-standard car.
Overall the car is in excellent condition and I have always paid MM specialists for regular work & servicing. Anything wrong, it's fixed straight away with new or new-old parts.
It has a long list of extras: brake servo, front discs, alternator, electronic ignition, battery cutout, ignition cutout, brake fluid reservoir, halogen headlights, modern seatbelts front and rear, Kenwood Radio/CD, headlamp flasher, hazard flasher, rear fog light, 12V socket, heated rear windows, Newton Commercial adjustable front seats. It also has a Mountney sports steering wheel. Underneath is a 3.9 differential to help with dual carriageway driving (It's as good as having a 5 speed box.).
Recent new items include tyres, radiator, unleaded head, battery, window runners, headlamp surrounds, boot handle and more.
Outwardly the car has no visible rust; the underside is brushed down, oil sprayed & checked annually, and waxoyl every other year. I have just paid for the restoration and partial replacement of the woodwork and she looks stunning!
The front steel wings were new in 2014 as was one of the rear fibreglass wings. The engine bay is that of a working car but everything is in very good order. If I was keeping it the next work I'd get done (if I was being fussy!) would be respraying the roof and a rear wing - though both are still very good condition.
I have a full service record for my years of ownership and a folder with information going back to 1992 when the second owner bought it.
The engine runs very sweetly and smoothly. To quote staff at Charles Ware's "you could drive this to Paris" without a problem. Whilst its no longer legally needed, it was last MOT'd November 2018 and I would happily sell it with a 1 year MOT if this is preferred.
I've just received its Heritage Certificate from the British Motor Museum. I am happy to drive a little distance to meet genuinely interested buyers. Thank you for reading! Happy to answer any questions and provide more photos.
