Morris Minor Traveller Restoration

Our Morris Minor Traveller restoration is complete, and, if we don’t say so ourselves, looks fantastic! These are really cool little cars, and we couldn’t be more pleased with how the finished product turned out. As usual, the paint and body was done by Ken’s Body Shop right here in San Luis Obispo—and it came out great. The car has been painted black with a base coat and clear coat that makes it really pop with a very deep finish.

On its way home to a proud owner.

It’s come a long way since we first started. Take a look at the early stages.

The most difficult part of this restoration was getting the wood work just right. Luckily, the guys at Woodies did an incredible job on the wood kit, and the whole process went very smoothly. Please take a moment to check out the photos of this awesome woody, and feel free to ask questions and comment.

    Fantastic . I have one 1962 countryman in good condition like the one in your tutorial but sum of the wood on the rear Right Hand side behind the Bumper is roten and needs to be replaced or repaired , but I live in New Zealand and the timber is hard to get.

    I am rebuilding a traveller including all the wood.
    The wood can be got in nz (auckland) but you need to hand select each piece.
    There area number of different size timber available so you also need a good workshop to process it.
