1947 Morris 8


1947 Morris 8

Sadly 1920/30's family saloons are becoming difficult to move, due solely to the generation gap created by the aging enthusiast giving up on pre war classics.

Having said this, there will always be exceptions and Morris 8's and Austin 7's are just that!

We last sold this 10 years ago to the present owner who echoes the above comments. 

Although the superb headcloth is original, the upholstery has been renewed. The engine starts first pull, sounds sweet and shows good oil pressure. Indicators fitted and the spotlamp works.

Now exempt MOT and free road tax.

On site now for viewing.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.

Don't forget. We personally collect FREE of charge around 90% of all our auction vehicles.

So, if you have a vehicle which you would like us to re-home.... just make the call. 01751 474455

Thank you.
