Footnotes

  • The Traveller estate version of Alec Issigonis' 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. 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 and stylish Traveller remained popular right to the end, and today the model enjoys an affectionate and enthusiastic following.

    This restored Minor 1000 Traveller was purchased from Charles Ware's Morris Minor Centre in Bath in 2001, having been upgraded by them that same year. Improvements include servo-assisted brakes, alternator electrics, halogen headlamps, hazard warning lights, heated rear window and an up-rated heater. Circa 200 summer miles have been covered annually since acquisition and 'HJB 755D' is described as in generally good condition. The car is offered with current road fund licence, MoT to March 2014 and Swansea V5 registration document.
