Just before lockdown, on 19 March, we were already social distancing when we met Stephen Ellis with his gorgeous Morris Minor Traveller. Stephen has made the restoration of his beloved car a labour of love – or, as he admitted, an expenditure of love (if that’s an expression). He had the restoration carried out by an expert.

But we hope that these pictures will give some pleasure to our readers while you are unable to see machines like this “in the flesh”.
And for those of you who are working in your garages on your Minors, it’s all right: you can scream in a jealous rage, because not many people will hear you.
