KAR 2032001 CH 1,098cc OHV Inline 4-Cylinder Engine SU Carburetor 48bhp at 5,100rpm 4-Speed Manual Transmission Independent Front Suspension - Live Rear Axle 4-Wheel Drum Brakes * Ingenious Alec Issigonis design * Professionally converted to left hand drive * Rare Traveler Estate version of the iconic Morris Minor The postwar Morris Minor, one of Alec Issigonis's first masterpieces, became nearly as iconic during its 23 years of production as its ostensible successor and sister icon, the Mini. Imports to the United States began in 1949, which required raising the headlamps from their position in the grille in order to meet local codes, a change soon adopted across the board. After Morris merged with Austin to form the British Motor Corporation, a Series II Minor was introduced and a Traveler estate car, a van, and a pickup were introduced at this time. These were built on a separate chassis frame and heavy-duty suspension to cope with heavier loads, with telescopic rear dampers, stiffer rear leaf springs and lower-ratio differentials. The Traveler had an external structural frame of varnished ash while the panel van was of all steel construction. When the engine was enlarged to 948 cc in 1956, the name "Morris 1000" was adopted, along with a one-piece windshield replacing the split screen of earlier cars, it was upgraded again to 1,048cc in September 1962. This example of the ever charming 'Moggie' Traveller decodes as being of the latter 1,048cc and Deluxe variety, which in simple austere post war Britain, meant the addition of leather seats, a heater, ashtrays, bumper over-riders and a front parcel shelf. It presents today in the invitingly named colorway of Bermuda Blue, with a red coachline to match its red interior. An older restoration, the car shows some of its age, with some localised surface corrosion and paint loss, however nothing that detracts hugely from the overall personality of these cars. Owned by a British Racing Club member from England who had the car converted to right hand driver for his wife for their home outside Washington DC.
