1953 Morris Six



1953 Morris Six

The Morris Six was produced by Morris Motors Limited between 1948 and 1953. It was Morris's first post war six-cylinder car. All the new cars were of integral construction of chassis and body and rode on independent front suspension with torsion bars. At launch the car was priced at £607 (including tax) on the UK market though the price increased to £671 in March 1949.

A car tested by the British magazine ‘The Motor’ in 1950 had a top speed of 82.5 mph and could accelerate from 0-60 mph in 22.4 seconds. A fuel consumption of 20 miles per imperial gallon was recorded. The test car cost £671 including taxes.

In 1950 the rear axle ratio was lowered to improve acceleration and twin dampers fitted to the front torsion bar independent suspension.

A de-luxe version was announced at the 1953 London Motor Show with leather upholstery, a heater and over-riders on the front bumpers.

Finished in Dark Red with contrasting Red interior the car we have requires improvements but is guided accordingly.
