Cowley is the production plant near Oxford.

To cheapen the sale of vehicles produced since 1913, be mounted engine, clutch and gearbox American manufacturers from 1915 onwards. The first delivery suceeds with about 1500 units but the ship with a second, similarly sized delivery is sunk by German submarines because of the raging World War II. From 1919, the drives are manufactured by the Hotchkiss company in Coventry. It becomes the best-selling British car of the 20s.

When dealing with the history of Morris, one should keep apart the bullnose and flatnose models. The former are made only from 1915 to 1926. With them the cleaning of the 'German nickel silver' is an act to self-abandonment. The in this respect less demanding flatnose survived until 1934. 07/13               Top of page               Index
