Morris Eight Series E

With War clouds looming over Europe Morris launched its new Eight model in 1938. The Eight used the trusty old 29bhp sidevalve four and found many friends amongst the loyal Morris customer base. Following the end of World War Two Morris blew the dust off of the Eight and re-launched it to the new-car hungry world as the Eight Series E.

The Series E had hydraulic brakes, a swept back radiator grille and streemlined, built-in headlamps to give it a fresher appearance, although it had to still make do with the old-fashioned "Artillery" wheels. The Eight Series E held the fort well until the revolutionary Minor arrived in 1948.  Practical Classics September 2006 - Buying Guide Featuring Morris Eight (1934-1948).  Click Here to view in our shop.
