The Wooden Door Frames of the Traveller
1953 - 1971

The introduction of the Morris Minor Traveller in 1953 saw a return, or at least a backward reference, to the days of coach building. The rear bodywork of this little estate-type model had a wooden frame. It also had two vertical rear doors as in a van.

The Traveller had a certian rural provenance to it, much favoured by the Countryside Alliance type of yesteryear.

Today, Traveller Timbers which makes new timber frames for the Traveller, is based in rural Yorkshire, and describes itself as a "cottage industry".
