Lot 1922

Description:

1930 Morris Isis
Reg. no. WD 1011
Chassis no. 152421
Engine no. 7B12468
Introduced in July 1929 as the range-topper in the Morris line-up, the Isis used the same 2.5 litre straight-six and three speed gearbox as was already in use in the Morris Six JA, but with a new chassis and body. The body was made by the Pressed Steel Company, an Anglo-American venture, and thus incorporated some fashionable transatlantic styling cues. As befitted a top of the range model, the car was well-equipped, with a luxurious interior and powerful engine. It was also the first Morris car to feature hydraulic brakes.
This 1930 example is one of only four known to survive from that year. It has been restored over the course of over 30 years by respected Morris enthusiasts, with great attention to detail and originality. Since completion in 2011 it has been in regular use and remains in excellent condition inside and out, this car also comes with a large history file with old photographs and correspondence. Running well, this car was purchased by the vendor earlier this year but is now only for sale due to impending loss of storage.
