1961 Morris Minor Traveller Restoration

We’re very excited about this project as we’ve always been huge fans of Morris Minor Travellers. This particular example is a 1961 and it’s actually very sound mechanically, in addition to featuring an upgraded 1275cc engine, disk brakes, and 5-speed transmission. However, as you can clearly see, it is quite lacking in the cosmetic department. We’ll be completely replacing the wood and doing a high-quality bare metal paint job to this car so it’ll look just as good as it runs. Getting the wood to fit perfectly can be a difficult task, but we’re certainly willing and able to see it through. Be sure to check back and follow our progress as we bring this great car back to life.

Check out some photos of the Traveller as it was when it arrived at the shop.

    A Traveler was worked over on an episode of “Wheeler Dealers”. You might find it a good watch, maybe even some usful information.
