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.
The Traveller sold well in Series II form and would be a popular model in the range for many years, indeed it was the last passenger car version of the Minor to be produced when production of the Morris 1000 finished in 1971.
