Lot 1946

Description:

1938 Morris 10 M Series Saloon
Reg. no. LS 4208
Chassis no. 4135
Engine no. A23076
Introduced in 1932 as Morris’ offering in the vital 10hp family car market, the Morris Ten went through several changes during the decade as the company sought to out-do the competition from the likes of Austin and Hillman. The Series M was the fourth and final iteration of the vehicle; introduced in 1938, it would continue after the war, until 1948. The car featured the Nuffield Group’s excellent 1.2 litre XPAG overhead-valve engine, of MG sports-car fame. In the Ten, it produced 37bhp – it may not sound like much these days, but that was a very respectable output for a 10 tax horsepower car of the era, and the XPAG engine can produce more with some light fettling. Top speed was in the region of 60-65mph. Thoroughly conventional cars – this is no bad thing – they were reliable, economical and comfortable – just what the buying public wanted in this sector – and over 80,000 were sold.
This 1938 Series M was restored in 2012; it is now in good all-round condition. It is offered with a V5c and an old style logbook.
