1968 MORRIS MINOR TRAVELLER - PRETTY, HIGHLY USEABLE. For Sale
Here's a pretty Minor Traveller just waiting for its new owner. A highly useable example with an MoT until September 2018, she has covered just 5,000 miles in the past ten years. Also, having checked out her MoT history, she had passed 11 tests in succession until she failed number 12 just a couple of months ago. But worry not. She failed on her horn not working and passed as soon as this was fixed!
We all know where Traveller prices are these days and here is an opportunity to get into the world of the world famous Moggie Minor estate without paying £12k plus. This proud old girl is available for around half that figure. Her woodwork has been replaced and is absolutely fine and solid. Some small areas have that grey look where some varnish has flaked off. But I have sanded down many of these Travellers in the past and then either re-varnished or applied Danish Oil to the bare ash. It's a simple enough task. The driver's side front wing appears to be relatively new and the colour match is not perfect but liveable with in my view. Apart from some almost inevitable paint defects here and there, she is a very pretty car on the road and hopefully well within the price bracket of those who cannot or will not pay five-figure sums.
I accept all major debit/credit cards and a ten per cent deposit is required at the point of sale with the balance due within three days. I can also assist with delivery and so please ask for a quote.
All my classic cars are treated as the equivalent of motoring antiques. This one, for example, is almost 50-years-old. They cannot be compared to the wife's six-month-old Chelsea tractor and they are bound to come with imperfections, quirks and bits and pieces that will need attention even if it is some time in the future. They do however come with oodles of charm, appeal and are there to be loved like a family pet. If you are new to the classic car scene, then please bear all this in mind. Demand is outstripping supply these days and they don't make the old girls any more. So, make some allowances and drive away with a smile on your face! Thanks for reading, Martin. (07595-020282).
