Curious about my old Traveller

Post by 53lake »

I'm wondering about my 1968 Maroon Traveller, UPG 997F. I noted on the DVLA website that the tax expired in early 2016, and the MOT in 2017.

Named Maurice, he was my first car in 1976, purchased for 250 pounds. He was a godsend so I could see my girlfriend (now my wife), who lived far from a bus route. We travelled all over the country together, with our black lab "Ike" (still have a photo!).

I put a new gearbox in, replaced the rusted front wings, and bondoed the rotting wood (sorry, I was on a bit of a shoestring). When we emigrated to the USA in 1980, with nowhere to store him, he was a forced sale to a corner garage near Heathrow, and I always regretted having to do that.

I'm amazed that he was still surviving in 2016. Now I'm curious if that was the end, or is he lovingly stored in someone's garage?

Do let me know if you know this vehicle! Thanks.
