THE CAR ALWAYS BRINGS AN INSTANT AND ENDURING SMILE OF PRIDE AND SATISFACTION. IT ALSO WITHOUT DOUBT, REPRESENTS A VERY GENUINE PIECE OF BRITISH MOTORING HISTORY.

THIS LITTLE GEM WAS FIRST REGISTERED ON 2 MAY 1968 AND HAS HAD MERELY 7 KEEPERS IN ITS 58 YEAR HISTORY. THE CAR IS PART OF A PRIVATE COLLECTION AND HAS ONLY BEEN USED SPARINGLY IN DRY/ WEATHER CONDITIONS. INDEED OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS THIS CHERISHED CAR HAS SEEN MINIMAL USE. THE MORRIS AS IT PRESENTS TODAY, IS A CREDIT TO ITS KEEPERS AND THE MARQUE. IT IS ALSO A CLEAR INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY ALIGNED TO IN-EXPENSIVE CLASSIC CAR OWNERSHIP, ENJOYMENT WITH NATURAL PRIDE OF OWNERSHIP AND AS PREVIOUSLY STATED A GENUINE PIECE IF BRITISH MOTORING HISTORY. CURRENT TOTAL MILEAGE IS 115, 558 WHICH EQUATES TO LESS THAN 2000 MILES PER ANNUM.
