It’s among the coolest-looking Minis ever, thanks to its low-line roof, combined with estate bodywork. Like its saloon cousin, it was the work of Neville Trickett and a degree of confusion has surrounded this car ever since it first broke cover in 1966. Until recently it was widely assumed that it was a one-off, built as an unofficial ‘works truck’. However, photos exist which show Minisprint Travellers with different registration numbers and slight detail alterations. Trickett himself recently confirmed that they were in fact the same car. However, the conversion was briefly offered for public consumption by Corsley Garage, with at least one ad appearing in print which trumpeted the Traveller as being ‘the last word in customising for those who enjoy their driving’. Prices started at £750 and rumour has it that Steve McQueen had two, but it is now widely held that only one car was ever made. DID YOU KNOW? The prototype was recently discovered in Australia.
