    You can find Travellers still, but they are much sought after, particularly the late model 1,098cc 'A' Series engine with better heater, interior, etc. Many preserved 'Moggies' are retrofitted with the 1,275cc Marina engine, which makes for better performance all round.

    In Australia many owners fit the Niassan/Datsun A12/A13/A14 engines instead, as spares 'Down Under' are cheap and easy to obtain.
