This smashing little Morris 8 Tourer, first registered on 12th April 1938, was restored in 1996, and has now developed a lovely patina. Finished in maroon over black, with very good burgundy interior and black hood, side screens and hood cover, it is powered by a 918cc side-valve engine, rated as an 8HP car, and driven through a 3-speed gearbox, allegedly providing 40 mpg at 40 mph. It starts easily, has good oil pressure and is a delight to drive – a marvellous vehicle for showing, or just popping down to the shops. These Morris 8s are a pretty reliable form of pre-war motoring. The structure is obviously good, having been restored, and the underside is clean and tidy. The accompanying file of paperwork includes continuation book from 1954, MOT certificates from 1997 to 2012, a good set of photographs of the restoration, and workshop manual. Just out of interest – the original price of this car £128 when new!
