Footnotes

  • Morris Sixes were around in small numbers in the early 1920s but the company's first serious effort did not materialise until 1927, with the appearance of the 'Light Six'. Based on that of the Wolseley 16/45, the latter's JA-type engine was a 2,468cc overhead-camshaft unit with an RAC rating of 17.7hp. Early in 1928 the model was renamed 'Morris Six', a designation dropped in July 1929 with the arrival of the Isis, which retained the 17.7hp engine but otherwise was almost entirely different, featuring a new chassis, all-steel Budd body (hence the American styling) and Lockheed hydraulic brakes.

    For 1932 there was a new Isis, which returned to traditional ash-framed coachwork and was less American in appearance. Beneath the skin the car remained much as before apart from a new four-speed gearbox, which replaced the old-three-speed unit. A cross-braced chassis was introduced on the 1934 model, a new radiator and Bendix automatic clutch/freewheel arriving at the same time.

    Repainted but otherwise un-restored, this rare coachbuilt Isis is believed to be the only survivor of six bodied by Mulliner, though at time of cataloguing it had not been possible to determine which of the three companies of that name was responsible. 'AOE 809' is described by the vendor as in generally good condition, with very good chassis and transmission, and fair bodywork and paint. The car is offered with old-style continuation logbook (issued 1956), two old MoT certificates (most recent expired July 2011) and Swansea V5C.
