MORRIS MARINA 1.3/1.7

2-door/4-door 4-seater coupé/saloon/estate.

Re-engineered Marina for final two years, with venerable B-Series engine dropped in favour of overhead-cam O-Series, but little 1.3-litre A-Series continued. Greatly improved facia style, with rakish under-bumped front spoiler, but no sheet-metal changes. NO GT/HL high-performance derivatives, but with 78bhp (DIN) 1.7 could beat 95mph. No two-door versions of 1.7-litre. Better than original type of Marina, but still nothing to get excited about. Replaced by Ital in mid-1980.
