1968 Morris Minor 1000 Traveller
I was surprised to stumble upon this vehicle on the way to my gym (which on weekends is over in Van Ness). Its a 1968 Morris Minor 1000 Traveller. The Morris Minor was a popular British motor car aimed at the family market. From what I’ve been able to find, the Traveller was introduced in 1952 along with van and pick-up versions. The Traveller featured an external structural ash (wood) frame for the rear bodywork, with two side-hinged rear doors. The frame was varnished rather than painted and a highly visible feature of the body style. Rear bodies of the van versions were all steel. The Traveller was very popular, and remained in production until 1971.
