1968 Morris 1300



1968 Morris 1300

Purchased by the vendors daughter back in 2004 with a speedometer reading of just 38,000 miles.

Then used regulary throughout each summer until 2010.

In 2005 the speedomter stopped working. The fault was traced to the speedo head. A 'New old stock' item was sourced and fitted. This new unit displayed zero mileage. At point of replacement the original head unit displayed 42,333 miles. (Add this figure to the current display) All this work was completed within One week of the original fault.

2007 / 2008 noted a major overhaul with again a 'New old stock' items including rear a subframe. New sills, trumpet panels, wings, bulkhead repair were undertaken and finally a respray.

In 2013 ownership passed into the vendors hands from his daughter. Cylinder head work was then undertaken by local engineers to cater for unleaded fuel, a new replacement electric fuel pump, steering rack and brake light switch.

As you can see the car looks great, has come from an extremely enthusiastic, knowledgeable and careful family which when added together will surely see the Morris find a new home on sale day.
