WOLSELEY EIGHT

4-door saloon.

'U' version of the Series E Morris with 33bhp ohv conversion, Wolseley bonnet and grille, and headlamps out of doors, but still six-volt electrics. Planned as a new model for 1940, it was Lord Nuffield's favourite car in his old age. Pleasing, and modestly priced. Engine was to have gone into Morris Minor for 1952.
