Morris
MORRIS EIGHT SERIES E

2-door saloon, 4-door saloon, 2-seater tourer, 4-seater tourer.

Radical styling for Morris, with waterfall grille, headlamps in wings (many survivors have Lucas 'bug-eye' conversions to improve resultant miserable lighting), rear-hinged bonnet, proper boot and no running boards. Underneath, though, there's little new: still with separate chassis using an 89ins wheelbase and the same engine. Four-speeds were a novelty, a 4-door saloon cost £149, and the car was good for 60mph and 40+mpg. Production (saloons only) continued after war, and Series E is probably the most readily obtainable pre-Issigonis Morris. A thoroughly worthy car.
