late Traveller breaking for spares, Southampton.

Breaking very rusty Traveller, most parts available. No engine. Shell has terminal rust and has been heavily MOT patched with many bodges making it unsafe. Back end is complete so if you have a rebuild that is missing the unique parts that make it up this would be the answer to many of your problems...

Interesting! The traveller was owned originally by a wholesalers in Ashford and used for transporting goods, particularly TVs apparently. Hopefully my photos are OK and include the Peat convertible which appears to be Rose Taupe as it had been given a back street blowover by someone who had issues m...

PD was a number issued in Surrey and Surrey Police HQ is in Guildford. I also knew a car locally that was bought new from Wadhams in Guildford which was also DPD. The a...

POMMreg is working on the Adderley Park Travellers, he will almost certainly be interested in the chassis body , engine numbers etc and has been trying to establish change points- e.g. when the steering lock was intorduced and when the engine colour changed from green to black.

Re: Late Travellers COT 796K, COT 800K & COR 426K

Hants regns(?) Your are correct Chris, in fact, all three cars were registered in Winchester. In those days at the registration office at The Castle, Winchester, which is still the HQ for Hampshire County Council. No doubt, COT 796K would be a good example for your late traveller chassis/body/engin...

I had checked the DVLA site and the car did not show so I phoned them and they told me to submit an application which I did immediately. It appears it is n...

Re: Is there a Stewart and Ardern archive?

The other problem with Stewart and Ardern is that it was the sole London distributor for Morris cars. (Gordon Stewart was a friend of William Morris). As I understand it, the cars were delivered to Acton - the distribution centre - from the factories and then may have ended up with smaller independe...

Re: Minor repairs

Maurice Rapley has been in business for a long time and from what I've seen of his welding work is nothing less than excellent. I called in when I was in the area about a year ago and we had a long chat.

Although this car is not on the DVLA website, I thought I'd post this just in case it still exists. I have acquired a pile of service sheets for it, so if you own it, please feel free to contact me by PM. The chassis no is quoted as MAW5(D) 1093793. The history file dates from 1966 to 68 when it was...
