Owner: Chris Knowles
Colour: Smoke Grey
1968 Smoke Grey Traveller. I have owned it for 6 years and had only one
previous owner. Nevertheless, even with its history and the fact that it was
taxed and MOT’d when I got it, it still needed plenty of work. After an
initial clutch change so I could use it for a few months, I took it off the road
for six months to carry out major renovation work.
Replacement of sills, suspension crossmember, rear inner wings, boot floor,
front wings and one rear wing, front inner wing repair panels.
Strip and bleach wood, replace 30% with new.
Full re-spray and corrosion protection.
Fit Fiesta XR2 front seats.
Front anti-roll bar.
Miniator alloy wheels.
The car has been kept almost standard and can be made original by swapping
the wheels and the seats etc. I did this because it is worth keeping a one owner
car as original as possible.
