Lot details

Registration No: MU 9277
Chassis No: 34TS29838
MOT: Exempt

Motor Car Location: Somerset

  • Just three owners and c.25,000 miles from new
  • Timewarp, original leather upholstery, cloth headlining and sunroof
  • Treated to a repaint, rejuvenated brightwork, new glass and gearbox overhaul in 1989 at a cost of £4,427.50
  • Notably smooth straight-six

This timewarp Morris 10/6 is understood to have had just three registered keepers and covered a mere 25,000 or so miles from new. A letter on file from the second owner dated January 6th 2010 reveals the following:

‘I purchased the car direct from the first owner in 1974. The recorded mileage is 23,091. The milometer ceased to function about two years ago. I can safely say that the mileage is less than 25,000 miles now. The car had a major overhaul in 1989 at a cost of £4,427.50. A new fuel pump was fitted and the gearbox was rebuilt in 2008 by John Evans of Hayling Island at a cost of £500’

The corresponding invoice dated 26th September 1989 from M.A.L. of Bridgwater shows that they carried out a minor bodywork restoration and respray as well as treating the Morris to replated brightwork and new glass.

Sparingly used since entering the current (third) ownership during July 2010, the 10/6 retains its original Dark Blue leather upholstery. Lifting the front passenger seat squab reveals a brass plate from supplying dealer Stewart & Arden Ltd of New Bond St, London W1 for ‘Service after Purchase’ with an enamel badge for the same firm adorning the neighbouring door trim.

Running sweetly following a period of inactivity as part of a large private collection, ‘MU 9277’ must be among the lowest owners, lowest mileage 1930s Morris cars available? A rare six-cylinder model to boot, it is worthy of close inspection.

Vendor Condition Ratings:

Bodywork: 'Good'

Engine: 'Very Good'

Electrical Equipment: 'Good'

Paintwork: 'Fair, some microblistering'

Transmission: 'Good'

Interior Trim: 'Very Original / Good'

Model Background:

Introduced in August 1933, the Morris Ten-Six was something of a luxury car in miniature. Derived from the popular Ten-Four, the newcomer sat on a six-inch longer wheelbase and was powered by a 1378cc six-cylinder engine allied to three-speed manual transmission. Notably smoother and more refined than its four-cylinder sibling, the Ten-Six was reputedly capable of 60mph. Equipped with all-round semi-elliptic leaf-sprung suspension and hydraulic drum brakes, it could be had in various saloon, coupe or tourer guises. Cache of its extra two cylinders apart, the Ten-Six was not different enough from the cheaper Ten-Four to be a sales success. Phased out of production in its second season, only a small number are known to have survived.
