Bought in 2016 as an unfinished restoration project, this Bullnose as had all areas attended to over the past three years and is now in running and driving condition. A new ash frame has been fitted and the bodywork restored with a photographic record. As a concession to safety on modern roads it has LED indicators to side lamps and rear indicators fitted. Benefiting from a full hood and hood cover, there is a running board mounted toolbox, battery tray and petrol can. A rear luggage trunk is also present. Finished in dark blue with black wings, black interior and blue artillery wheels, it looks every inch the vintage tourer.

Introduced in 1913, the basic 'Bullnose' Morris design lasted until 1926 by which time its variants accounted for an impressive forty-five per cent of new sales in the UK. Compared to its domestic and foreign rivals in the 12hp - 14hp market, it offered notably good performance courtesy of its torquey, sidevalve, four-cylinder engines and light yet robust leaf-sprung ladder chassis. Commendably reliable, 'Bullnoses' have enjoyed a loyal following ever since.
