Classic Car Auctions says:

Delightfully restored Traveller in hard-to-find automatic guise...

  • An older, bare-metal restoration with new panels but retaining its original wood
  • Only three previous owners and we understand the car was off the road for some time
  • Refreshed and returned to the road in 2014 and has covered less than 2,000 miles since
  • Older MOTs from the 1970s and 1980s, as well as more up to date ones since restoration
  • Interesting history with a file of restoration photos, an original BL Owners Manual and an early V5c
  • We know from experience that there is a significant demand from older people for a small, economic runabout with an automatic gearbox
