1970 MORRIS MINOR 1000 Traveler SOLD!

OK, it’s my brothers fault…..when I was 10 years old my older brother bought his first car….a Morris Minor 1000 and I have loved them ever since. Simply put, I believe they are the cutest cars ever made!

I have owned this particular Morris for 4 or 5 years and it is a terrific little car. I bought it in North Carolina where it had been imported from Wales. I have many pictures of the full restoration of the body,woodwork, mechanicals and drive train that was done in Wales in 2000. The car is a proper British right hand driver with all the original equipment. Everything is in great working order and has been well maintained. No rust or deterioration anywhere.

This is not a “trailer Queen” show car but rather an exceptionally original and desirable collector car that shows light usage and will delight for years to come. If it is maintained well, I would expect it to hold or increase its value in years to come.

I would not recommend the Morris if your passion is drag racing….I just realized that the Ferrari 360 I have,has more horsepower in one cylinder than the Morris has in total (48hp). I love this Morris and will insist that it goes to a good home!!!
