Morris Eight 1936


Specifications


Description

A rare brass surround Morris 8 (Series 1) in MINT condition throughout.

The Morris Eight was a small car but a great one. It was inspired by the sales popularity of the similarly shaped Ford Model Y and its success enabled Morris to regain its position as Britain's largest motor manufacturer.

ABOUT THIS CAR

  • This car is powered by a Morris UB series 800cc four-cylinder side valve engine with three bearing crankshaft and single SU carburettor with maximum power of 23.5 bhp (17.5 kW). The gearbox is a three-speed unit with synchromesh on the top two speeds and Lockheed hydraulic brakes were fitted. Coil Ignition was used in a Lucas electrical system powered by a 6 volt battery and third bush dynamo, although this car has been converted to 12 volts.
  • Car is factory equipped with a set of instruments including a speedometer with a built in odometer, oil pressure and fuel level gauges and an amp meter.
  • The more modern design of the Morris 8 was reflected in the superior performance of its hydraulically operated 8 inch drum brakes.
  • Car drives beautifully. It has been well looked after and pampered in a museum for a number of years.
  • This car has an excellent body. Paint is very good. Interior is mint throughout. Everything works as it should. Engine Bay very clean and tidy. 
  • Very good tires, good battery and excellent motor.
  • No unduly rattles or noises - a great example not to be missed.
  • Maintenance and Service records available.
