I will be adding details here of my new purchase. It is a 1937 Morris Ten, It was last taxed back in 1974 and is in remarkable condition with no body rust whatsoever. This is going to be the subject of a full restoration including complete stripdown, respray and interior replacemant. The car was on view in it's unrestored condition at the 2011 Classic car show at the NEC Birmingham.
The Morris 10 - 4 Series 2 was introduced in 1935 to much critical acclaim. Described as being a streamlined design, without being in any way extreme. The new model entered a market place with plenty of competition. The car was noted for its roominess and performance was average with a top speed of 61 mph. At £183 the saloon was well priced.
The 1937 Morris as found,
stored in a garage in Kent
Here I'm seen collecting my new baby.
The brief story so far ....
July 2011 and I got an email via this site about the car. I went along to view the car and several others (more later). After a few weeks of negotiations the cars were sorted and I became the owner of this one. The organisers of the Classic Car Show heard about the finds and asked the Bexhill 100 Motoring Club (of which I was a member at the time) to display all the cars, as found, in a "Barn Find" display at the 2011 show. Watch this site for the rest of the story from early 2012
