1971 Morris Minor Traveller - Good Condition For Sale
Here is my 1971 Morris Traveller - selling due to lack of space.
It has been an excellent car in the period I have owned it, completing the 300 odd miles to Durham with aplomb. It is currently my daily driver.
It benefits from a few sensible modifications - disc brakes and electronic ignition - which means it is relatively happy in modern traffic. The previous owner had fitted a new radiator, and it has had the crossmember and inner wings replaced to make it a good solid car. I have, in my ownership, fitted a new heater valve, new driver's seat cover, new waist rail and rear pillar, and replaced a few seals. As such it is a very good little car that needs a little bit of tlc to make it into something very special.
Some of the less good points are that the paint is starting to look tired (it came out of the factory in the rare, 1 year only Aqua colour) and that there are a couple of tears in the rear bench seat and armrest. The brakes are currently a little spongy but I am having them seen to and new bump stops fitted on Monday (9/12/19). I am currently waiting for the V5C to arrive, but the car will be supplied with a bill of sale.
Like any 48 year old car, it wears it's age - there are a few battle scars and rust bubbles, and the like. If this car was perfect it would be five times the price!
This is, as it stands, a perfect winter project - whether as a Christmas present for a loved one, or as something to keep yourself occupied over the winter as a rolling restoration. This must be the cheapest running, driving Traveller on the market.
