|1957 Morris Traveller||M60 Home Restorations Gallery|
There were four models in the Morris Minor 1000 family: two- and four-door sedans, a two-door convertible, and a two-door estate wagon, the Traveller. The Traveller was introduced in 1952 and featured an external structural ash frame for the rear bodywork, with two side-hinged rear doors.
The frame was varnished rather than painted. The Morris Minor 1000 series engines available between 1956–62 were 948 cc (57.9 c.i.) inline-fours. These managed a dependable 37 HP at 4,750 rpm, with 50 lb·ft torque at 2,500 rpm.
The Morris Traveller, a classic woodie, drew eyes and comment wherever it went. I grieve daily that it was sold, and one hopes to somebody who loves it as much as I.
