  Morris Minor Traveller  

The estate version of the Morris Minor was introduced in 1952, known as the Traveller (a Morris naming tradition for estates, also seen on the Mini and some Oxfords). The Traveller featured an external structural ash wood frame for the rear bodywork, with two side-hinged rear doors, the panelling on the rear body being aluminium. The frame was varnished rather than painted and a highly visible feature of the body style. Travellers were built alongside the saloon model at Cowley minus their rear bodies. The half-completed cars were then shipped to the MG factory at Abingdon where the bodies, which had been built in Coventry, would be mated to the chassis and the final assembly carried out. This was because the main Cowley production lines were no longer fully equipped to deal with body-on-frame vehicles such as the Traveller while the MG lines still handled these sorts of cars and had experience working with wood-framed bodies.

Production of the Traveller and commercial versions ceased in April 1971, the convertible and saloon going out of production in 1969 and 1970 respectively.
