MORRIS EIGHT SERIES Saloon 1936

vehicle overview

1936 Morris 8 Saloon. Blue over Black with Navy leather upholstery. William Morris, later to be enobled Lord Nuffield, launched his first Minor in 1928 as a direct competitor for Austin's Seven, powered by an 847cc single overhead cam motor developed by Wolseley. 39,087 ohc-engined Minor cars and commercials, and a further 47,231 vehicles with sidevalve motors were built. The first Minor was replaced by the new Eight at the 1934 London Show. During its five year production run, a total of 21,000 Eights were made at Cowley, 15 per cent of them being open tourers, though most saloons like this 1936-built example. This beautiful Morris has been subject to a comprehensive restoration and is in stunning condition. The file contains the original buff log book. It drives just as it should and has a strong engine. The underside is very solid and no sign of any corrosion. The paintwork is fresh with a superb lustre and the upholstery has all been replaced. Superb panels and gaps. Perfect for shows or rallies. This Morris would grace any private collection and is a car we would be very proud to own. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted. Free U.K Mainland delivery.
