“Grommit”
The Traveler was restored some years ago by the owner before the one I got the car from. It came with the engine below, and it looks like it was a fully rebuilt engine. I have since spent another $3K on basic maintenance and updates.

Car is running like a dream and is in regular dry day use.

The British Telephone Box is also something I own. It was shipped from the UK and is fully wired and working. It is probably one of the only working ones in the USA, and I am certain the only functioning one in Massachusetts.


Engine
12CD-DA-H 9533

The 12CD is a Sprite/Midget engine. It's a North American emission control, (1st generation) engine , that would have come with vented SU's as part of the PCV/emissions system. It's the 2nd generation iteration of the inline 1275 for the Sprite MKIV or Midget MKIII.

The 12CD was produced from January '68 to August '69. Number sequence was 101 to 21184, so it's near halfway into production with 9533, approximately Oct/Nov '68.

They look really good when they are done! We have one to be restored, hopefully at some point this year.
