Description

The Morris Six MS is a six-cylinder luxury car produced by Morris between 1948 and 1953. In 1948, Morris presented a whole series of new postwar cars. The biggest model was the six-cylinder Six MS. The shared body work and technology with the smaller Morris Oxford and the more luxurious Wolseley 6/80. The car was completely modern, with self-supporting body work and individual front suspension with torsion rods. The engine had an overhead camshaft but, unlike Wolseley, had to settle for a simple carburetor. Production ceased in March 1953, after 12,400 copies.
This car has been rescued in a dry garage in the Kalmar area since the 1970s. It has been owned by a now deceased car enthusiast who drove it for 10 years from the late 1960s and then garaged it for future renovation work. The car looks good underneath and technical details seem ok but brakes don't work and the engine doesn't go around. We have had a mechanic pour oil into the cylinders to make them free so that the test start can be carried out.

Condition

  • Mechanical condition:

    The car has not been driven for more than 40 years. Will need a technical review. The engine is not turning around, Bad tires, Battery missing and Brakes do not work.

  • Interior condition:

    Light traces of use and dusty but complete. Nice dashboard. See pictures.

  • Exterior condition:

    Worn with dents and repair work but has a good underbody.

  • General condition:

    Sold as a spare parts car but can be started with some spanner time, its unusual model. There are plenty of spare parts to be found in England.

Facts about the model

Morris började tillverka bilar 1913 och var inspirerade av Henry Fords sätt att tillverka bilar. Efter några år blev Morris Englands största biltillverkare.
Efter andra världskriget presenterade Morris flera nya moderna modeller konstruerade av Alec Issigonis, bland annat Morris Minor och lyxmodellen Morris Six och företaget återtog positionen som Storbritanniens största tillverkare. Men efter den kraftansträngningen gick luften ur företaget och när man 1952 gick samman med forna huvudkonkurrenten Austin i British Motor Corporation var det Austin som snabbt tog över ledningen. I samband med den rationalisering av modellprogrammen som följde, raderades skillnaden mellan de två märkena snart ut och Morris bilar blev rena kopior av motsvarande Austin-vagnar.
Sista modellerna var Morris Marina och Morris Ital som tillverkades till 198 respektive 1984.
