1963 Morris Minor Traveller, first owner for almost 50 years. Delightfully original example.

Key Facts


The Morris Minor Traveller made its debut at the Earls Court Motor Show in October 1953 with customer deliveries commencing early the following year.

Almost a decade later in the Autumn of 1962, Morris fitted the 1098cc engine to the Minor, the engine making its group debut in August of this year in the Morris 1100. Other additional changes consisted of an improved gearbox and brakes. Cars built between October 1962 and September 1964 are often referred to as the ‘Interim’ or ‘Transitional’ model, mainly because they bridged the gap between the 948cc models and the final major final revamp of the model which were then in place until the final production in 1971.

The ‘Interim’ model retained many features of the 948cc model, including the three spoke steering wheel, bronze-faced speedometer, solid sun visor’s and clap-hands windscreen wipers.

This particular ‘Interim’ Traveller was first registered in Surrey on the 1st August, 1963. Finished in Almond Green with Porcelain Green & Silver Beige upholstery. It resided in West Horsley, Surrey with its first owner for three months short of fifty years. There is a significant amount of documentation during this time, verifying both the mileage and the love and care taken to ensure its good health.

The current owner has kept the Traveller for the past eleven years, always safely garaged, used sparingly and never ventured out in the rain. Needless to say, it’s in excellent condition and is delightful to drive.

The advisory free MOT is valid until 25th March, 2025 and this lovely Traveller is ready to be enjoyed by its fortunate new owner.
