1967 Morris Minor Traveller
The Morris Minor Traveller or woody is an iconic car of the 1960’s and for very good reason. The Morris Minor is a British car that made its debut at the Earls Court Motor Show, London, on 20 September 1948. Designed under the leadership of Alec Issigonis, more than 1.6 million were manufactured between 1948 and 1972 in three series, the MM (1948 to 1953), the Series II (1952 to 1956), and the 1000 series (1956 to 1971).
Initially available as a two-door saloon and tourer (convertible), the range was expanded to include a four-door saloon in 1950, a wood-framed estate car (the Traveller) from October 1953 and panel van and pick-up truck variants from May 1953. It was the first British car to sell over a million units and is considered a classic example of automotive design, as well as typifying “Englishness”
This example has been completely rebuilt by the world renowned Charles Ware company in Bristol, England in 2012. The car was ordered and delivered to a gentleman in Auckland where it led a very pampered life before being sold to our client in North Canterbury. The vehicle is in as-new condition with faultless paint, woodwork, interior trim etc. Charles Ware is regarded as the holy grail of Morris Minor restorations in the World and this example certainly lives up to that reputation. With sympathetic modifications, this is a classic that not only looks and feels so period but could happily be used as a daily driver. A rare opportunity to purchase a Charles Ware example here in New Zealand. BAINS CLASSIC MOTOR HOUSE is a low volume boutique classic car broker. Viewing of vehicles is by appointment only in our North Canterbury located Motor House.
