A 1971 Morris Minor Traveller, registration number AHY 591J, chassis number MAW5D1291605F, Lime flower.

Other improvements include the rechroming of the bumpers and overriders, gas struts on rear doors and the fitting of a tow bar. The vendor advises that this well presented traveller is now a joy to drive and is offered for auction with a large history file containing numerous receipts and MOTs. He also advises that the modifications and upgrades have cost in the region of £13,000. V5C, MOT to August 2016
