Sold Morris Eight 1937

Morris Eight 1937



Here we have a most honest 1937 Morris 8 (Series 1) in VERY GOOD condition throughout.

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

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 ammeter.

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 12V battery and excellent motor. Starts first time, does not smoke and does not leak oil.

A great wee car that drives and feels like new. No rattles or noises. Just drives beautifully. This is a great example not to be missed.

Has a new WOF and registration is currently on hold. Will be sold with a 12month registration.

PRICE FIRM. Registration is currently On Hold. Has a brand new WOF. Will be sold with a 12 months registration.
