"Over the years I have purchased numerous vehicles, but found with the Jaguar purchase Gloria and Jesmond provided a more genuine and personal service than I have previously experienced. Prior to uplifting the vehicle, Jesmond organised an oil change, WOF, and installation of an isolating switch, all at his cost."Dave Johnson, Christchurch, New Zealand
The 1930s was a decade of massive road building and soaring car ownership and this contender for machine of the decade is one of the great mass-produced, affordable cars of the era.
The challenge for this British car was to be good enough to fight off competition from the well-established Ford models dating back to the Model T (1908-27).
The Series I Morris 8 was introduced in Britain in 1935, the same year as the compulsory driving test, which many people in the 1930's passed in this very car. It's powered by a 918cc four cylinder engine producing 23.5 brake horsepower and a very economical 45mpg.
