Getting Our Traveller Ready For Competition

Classic car technician Jonn has been working on our 1965 Morris Traveller 1000, getting it ready to go live on Bridge Classic Cars Competitions very soon.

Jonn stripped the air intake pipe and fitted a new one in the cabin. He then cut off the old pipe and secured the new one with a jubilee clip at the heater.

A new regulator was wired up and the car was run up to temperature. It was charging at 14.2v which Jonn was happy with. He noticed that the temperature gauge was not working. Upon investigation, he found a blown fuse under the bonnet. This was replaced and tested and everything was working as it should.

The spare wheel was fitted back into the rear of the car and a road test was carried out.

Work Begins On Our Traveller

Classic car technicians Jonn and Brian have been working on our 1965 Morris Traveller 1000.

Jonn resecured the offside rear door bracket after it was found to be loose, he then went on to bond the fuel cap surround onto the tank neck. Another job for Jonn was to tidy up and secure the wiring loom that he described as ‘spaghetti junction’. This now looks much better thanks to his handy work. The brake fluid level was checked and found to be okay.

Brian also gave our Morris Traveller some attention with his focus being the interior of the classic vehicle. New kick panels were fitted as were new rear quarter panels before Brian put the rear seat base back into the car.

New door panels, handles, and pull straps were fitted before Brian removed the rear seat so he could cut down the sides allowing the seats to fold back. The parcel shelf was removed and a new one was made before Brian fitted carpet clips to the front carpets.
