Morris C8 Recovered

Recommended Posts

Spent the other day helping recover a Morris C8 for a friend.

Took most of a day to clear the route of old wood and rubbish so we could tow it out.

Amazingly the tyres pumped back up and with a few attempts she rolled out

She looks pretty original apart from the Harvey Frost crane although pretty battered and fairly rotten.

Does anyone know anything about the front wheels? I didnt get a close up picture but they are not the usual split rim but have a locking ring like the GMCs etc.

Great find.

The wheels could be pre/early war type.

Great Find; it looks to be a standard GS version, so I'm looking forward to seeing the progress on its restoration.

I enquired about the seat frame being offered on the WAF forum and the gentleman seems to think that he has hit the jack pot as he wants 350eu for it.  Silly boy!!

That's too bad. Maybe just make a more resonable offer and wait if he comes to his senses?
