1969 '69 Morris Minor 1000 Traveller - Beautiful condition SOLD

Designed under the eagle eye of Sir Alex Issigonis, most famous for the BMC Mini, the Morris Minor first made its appearance at the 1948 Earls Court Motor Show. Initially available as a two-door saloon and tourer / convertible, the Minor (built between 1948 and 1972) saw development during 3 phases in the cars life: the MM ('48-53) with it's low-lights, split-screen front window and side valve engine; the series II ('52-56) saw the introduction of the 'A' series engine and in '52 the estate or Traveller version was introduced with its external wooden (Ash) structured body being fitted to the front (saloon body) at the MG plant in Abingdon as the Morris Cowley plant could no longer cater for body-on-frame built vehicles. In 1956 the Minor 1000 was introduced, the two-piece front screen now being replaced by a curved one-piece windscreen, an increase in engine capacity to 948cc, the original semaphore indicators now being changed for the more modern front / rear flasher units and in 1962, although retaining the Minor 1000 name, the car saw some of its biggest changes with an improved 1098cc 'A' series engine, improved braking / gearbox and improved interior styling.

By 1969 with sales declining, production of the tourer / convertible model ended, the saloon being discontinued in 1970 and by the end of 1972 and with some 1.3 million Minors sold, including the Traveller, van and pick-up models production of the Morris Minor finally ceased with the car officially being replaced by the Morris Marina, although many feel the spiritual successor was the similarly family sized Austin / Morris 1100 model.

Sold new on the 1st February 1969 and finished in Smoke Grey, with a blue-grey interior, Absolute Classic Cars are delighted to offer this fantastically presented Morris Minor Traveller. Having been fastidiously owned by a classic car enthusiast for the last 6yrs and only 4 previous keepers, the Traveller is only being sold due to a lack of use....and to quote the owner, 'if the forecast suggested rain, then she wasn't coming out.'

With a history folder containing some 40 previous MOTs its wonderfully easy to imagine the journeys this delightful car has been on, there is no doubt she has been well cared for over the last 48years. In July 2000, the car received a comprehensive restoration at the marque specialist Minor Services of Witchford, Cambs and this well documented rebuild and subsequent maintenance has helped to keep her in such wonderful condition, with works including:

Replacement Engine including unleaded cylinder-head conversion
Gearbox rebuild
Replacement clutch
Rebuilt front suspension / brake assembly
Negative earth / alternator conversion
Carburetor rebuild
Brake reservoir top-up kit conversion
Rebuilt rear axle
Newton Commercial 'Suffolk' reclining seat conversion
Front and rear seat-belts

Mechanically in excellent order and having traveled less than 8000 miles since her rebuild and unleaded engine conversion it's a real joy to drive this Traveller. With the smallest amount of 'choke' needed on start-up the 1098cc engine starts easily and pulls sweetly through all gears and the Traveller will happily sing along down country roads.

Often a weak point on many Morris Minor rebuilds are the panel gaps which are consistent and even around the car. Her Smoke Grey bodywork is blemish free, the chrome and paint having a wonderful lustrous shine and the Travellers woodwork is by far the best we've ever seen. On opening the door / tail-gate, the driver and passengers are met with an interior in first class order with all the switches, latches, carpet (including rubber over mats) etc having a quality feel and one can't help but smile watching the indicator stalk end 'flash' in unison with the exterior lamps. Having been upgraded with a Newton Commercial reclining seat conversion (we're delighted to also have the original seats in excellent condition) the Traveller really is a comfortable car to drive and despite being relatively small by modern car standards the Traveller actually offers a good amount of interior space with a bright and airy feel.

By far one of the nicest Morris Minor Travellers we've ever seen, the car comes with a fantastic history file containing a bill of sale to her 2nd owner in 1971 for the sum of £615, 40 previous MOT's back to 1974, her original Drivers Handbook and mountain of history from 2000 onwards with invoices in excess of £17000, the Traveller is now ready to be loved and enjoyed by her new owners.
