THE MORRIS MINOR

Arguably the fondest-regarded of all Britain's post-war saloons, the Alec Issigonis-designed Morris Minor was launched at the 1948 Motor Show. The first new post-war Morris design, the unitary construction Minor boasted torsion bar independent front suspension, rack-and-pinion steering and a four-speed synchromesh gearbox. A pair of two-door models was offered initially: a saloon and a convertible. A four-door saloon appeared in 1950, estates and commercials following later.

The Traveller estate version of the outstandingly successful Minor first appeared in 1953. By this time the Minor was in Series II form with an 803cc overhead-valve A-Series engine in place of the original 918cc sidevalve unit. In 1956 the Minor 1000 featuring an enlarged (948cc) engine and an improved gearbox appeared, the newcomer being readily distinguishable from the preceding 'split screen' model by virtue of its one-piece curved windscreen. The Traveller's timber structure was made from varnished ash and had two side-hinged steel rear doors. There was a further capacity increase (to 1,098cc) in 1962, and from then on the Minor remained virtually unchanged until the last model - a Traveller - rolled off the production line in April 1971. The practical Traveller remained popular right to the end, and today the model enjoys an affectionate and enthusiastic following.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This lovely 1960 example of the once utilitarian 'work-horse' Morris Minor Traveller - yet now very charming and iconic - is finished in a beautiful and period-correct misty blue color over a red interior. It is apparent that some high-quality restoration work was performed in the past, while many original factory finishes remain intact, including much of the chrome and brightwork. The timberwork appears very sound and the whole car has that lovely, solid feel you only find in cars that have been looked after. Rarely seen on this side of the pond, this charming and elegant Morris Minor Traveller would be great promotional vehicle for a befitting business and is sure to turn heads and get great smiles per gallon.
