1934 Morris 10/4 Four-Door Tourer
Chassis no. 35TN40109
William Morris, later Viscount Nuffield, was a pioneer in the British motor industry who introduced some of Henry Ford’s production line methods in Britain. He made his fortune producing smaller cars for the masses and based sporting models on his more utilitarian cars. The MG is so named from Morris Garages, a Morris agency in Oxford, where the MG marque originated. In 1933, the Morris 10/4 was introduced, a move up from light cars. It had a 1300cc four, was well built and up to date with hydraulic brakes. It came in several body styles including saloon, coupe, two-seat tourer with rumble seat and a traveler.

The model offered is a rare four-door, four-seat Tourer. Its chassis number marks it as a 1935 model, the last year the 10/4 was offered. It was first registered in Staffordshire in late 1934. This right hand drive model is ready for a drive on country lanes. The Burgundy body color is offset by the deep red upholstery. The black top has a nice tan cover to conceal it when folded. It proudly carries an Automobile Association badge and a horn on its badge bar. Running boards ensure an easy entry. Club sources recall the car being featured in a Mrs. Marple movie or TV series, but no documentation survives. This unusual Tourer is a fine example of a post-vintage thoroughbred from the largest British manufacturer of the day.
