1.3 Million Mosquitos: ’60 Morris Minor Traveller
We love prototype and project code names. The TR4 was referred to as the Zest so it shouldn’t surprise you that the Morris small car prototype was called the Mosquito. Thankfully, the brainchild of Sir Alec Issigonis was given the proper English name – Minor. It is often referred to as the British Beetle. They sold over a million of them worldwide. Unfortunately, there aren’t that many Minors left. The Traveller we have here today paid homage to the American Woodie. This is not a metal body with wood trim tacked on. The Minor was perhaps the last Woodie built the traditional way. And this one is the one you want to buy. It is a 1-owner, southern US car kept in a heated garage. The black finish is actually original. Not perfect but presentable but a true survivor quality paint. The red leather interior is said to be original too. The mechanicals have been gone through in anticipation of a busier life with the next custodian. And there is a lot of life left in the 948cc powerhouse with only 5,860 miles on the clock.
