Morris 8 Series II at the White Horse Show, Uffington 2011
One of the features of the White Horse Show is its ability to attract large numbers of classic and vintage cars. This is a Series II Morris 8 and is distinguishable from the earlier Series I by the chrome radiator grill and body-coloured radiator shell [on this example the paint has been removed to reveal the brass used to make the shell], and by the 'Easiclean' steel wheels in place of the earlier wire ones. I am not entirely sure but I may once have owned this car briefly in the 1960s. I bought it for 15 and paid the same amount for third party insurance. I had it for six weeks in the summer of 1967 before rolling it and disposing of what was left. To buy one nowadays would cost at least 3500 and probably a lot more.
