1948 Morris 8 Series E 4-door Saloon
We purchased this car direct from a local elderly gentleman who had owned and cherished it for the last 18 years. It is a 1948 car is lovely, totally original and unrestored condition. This Morris has a lovely patina, it drives stops and starts exactly as it should and is in all rounf excellent condition for the year. It has a current MOT even though the car is Road Tax exempt and MOT exempt. The car comes with some spares, the original operating manual, buff logbook and a second set of keys.. There is even an original lubrication wallchart. Paperwork shows that the car was originally KAL216, but became VFF524 November 1994.
ENGINE AND GEARBOX
The tiny 4 cylinder side valve engine has just 918 cc, and it is matched to a 4 speed gearbox. The engine was reconditioned in July 2003 at 69993 miles, The differential was replaced at 75,000 miles in October 2006 and a new clutch was fitted at 78747 miles. The little car runs very sweetly and economically.
The seats are original in brown leather and have worn very well considering the age of the car. The door cards have been recovered at some time and the carpets replaced. It really is a nice place to be, albeit slightly cramped. The instruments and dials are all in working order and really complement the car. the windscreen hinges outwards for fresh air.
This little family saloon is a 4 door car, with the fronts being forward opening ‘suicide doors. Finished in the original black the Morris 8 paintwork has a deep shine and there are no signs of corrosion anywhere. The grille was re-chromed a few years ago, and the brightwork all round is good.
This is a 3 owner car, and have been lovingly maintained over many years. Its buff logbook and old MOTs suggest the mileage is genuine. The car has been in Notts and Lincs all its life, and has been worked on by Roman Garages from time to time.
This is a rare opportunity to secure a slice of history. The car is original, unrestored and in excellent condition for year. We highly recommend it.
