1965 Morris Minor Traveller

A beautifully restored Morris Minor Traveller with only two owners prior to my purchase of Sparrow. It was first purchased by the godparents of the seller's wife on the Isle of Wight and was owned by the seller since 1989. It is a very useful vehicle (as much space as a modern station wagon) which has been diligently maintained and carefully restored. Although Sparrow is not concours — and the price reflects that — she is an everyday driver. When I picked up the car north of London, I was told how the original owners used the car every week to drive to the market to purchase their weekly provisions. As I have seen many times in England in years past, the couple would find a nice site near the ocean, park Sparrow, set up their table and chairs, bring out the picnic basket and enjoy their afternoon tea...and crumpets. Usually the man of the couple was outfitted in coat and tie and it was a "very proper English occasion!"

Registered with a New Hampshire title, it is one of the smoothest running Travellers I have come across. It drives like a dream...come look at her and drive her home.
