Footnotes

  • Introduced in the latter half of 1932, the Morris Ten stole a march on many of its rivals by virtue of its superior Lockheed hydraulic brakes, most small family cars of the period continuing to rely on mechanical systems. The 1,292cc four-cylinder sidevalve engine drove via a four-speed gearbox (with synchromesh from 1934) and in most other respects the Ten was entirely conventional. It was also extremely successful, helping Morris establish a commanding presence in the increasingly important 10hp market sector.

    Based on a Morris Ten chassis believed to date from circa 1939, this interesting 'special' is fitted with an MG XPAG engine, a four-speed gearbox, Morris axles, and a professionally built, two-seater sports body fronted by a Riley radiator grille. Trimmed in green vinyl, the interior features a wood-rim steering wheel and a wooden dashboard with Jaeger instruments. The body is finished in green with black wings, the wire wheels are silver-painted, and the hood is in good condition. A hood bag and tonneau cover are included in the sale. The Morris has recently undergone basic re-commissioning at Chris Shenton Engineering, though further works and a thorough check over are advised before returning it to the road. The car is offered with a V5C Registration Certificate and is sold strictly as viewed.
