Morris Minor 1000 Traveller

I'm not interested in cars as a rule but there are a few that I like very much.This clearly is one of them. It was conveniently parked in front of a shopfront that 'matched' the frame.

 

In 1953 another innovative version of the Minor joined the range, an estate car known as the Traveller. The Traveller used a wooden frame construction for the rear bodywork, this frame was a structural section and gained a reputation for being prone to rotting away! The Traveller featured split rear doors (as used on small vans) and a folding rear bench seat which increased it carrying capacity.
