The Morris Eight was a small family car with a production run from 1935 to 1948. Its inspiration coming from the popularity of the Ford Model Y. The success of the Eight enabled Morris to regain its position as Britain’s largest motor manufacturer. Compared to its peers, the Morris Eight was a well equipped car with the driver being provided with a full set of instruments including a speedometer with a built in odometer, oil pressure and fuel level gauges and an ammeter.
This 1935 Morris Eight was professionally converted into this charming pick-up in 2005. We are informed by the vendor that the restoration process involved work to the engine, gearbox, bodywork and interior. This pick-up has had minimal use since the restoration and is described as tremendous fun by the vendor. This attractive MoT exempt Morris is offered to auction with a V5C registration document and a file containing various bills, receipts and early documentation.
