"This was our first purchase from Waimak Classic Cars and has gone very well. Jesmond and Gloria were very attentive thru the complete process and nothing was a problem. Small issues were promptly fixed and attention to detail was good. Thank you and we look forward to many happy years driving our new classic. Best Regards"Mike Holden, Palmerston North, New Zealand
The Morris Major was in March 1958, developed from the contemporary Wolseley 1500 and Riley 1.5 Models then on sale in the UK.
The Major was produced at BMC Australia's Victoria Park plant at Zetland in Sydney, Australia, and was unique to that country, containing up to 98% local content.
The Major, as distinct from the sportier and more luxurious Wolseley/Riley cars, shared a similar level of appointment, finish and engine tune with contemporary Morris and Austin models.
Although comparatively modest, the Major was quite a modern car with a generally high level of comfort, quality and value. The sporting potential of the Major was recognised immediately and specially prepared cars were raced into the early 1960s.
