AFAIK, there was a three-window 4-door Morris Eight series E saloon
and a two-window 2-door Morris Eight series E coupe.

Has anybody seen the two-door Morris Eight in India?

There are a fair number of 2 door cars as well, one being mounted on a bungalow in Koregaon Park, Pune. A dear friend in Bombay has had one since 1960.

Shall post pics over the weekend when I have access to my computer.

I learnt driving on a 2-door Morris8; my family owned two 2-door Morris8's in Kolkata - once in the 60's, when I was too young to understand much, and once in the 80's - the one I learnt to drive on. Both, incidentally, were 2-door. I seem to remember the 60's car had a sliding metal sun-roof too, which often leaked water during the rains.

To the best of my knowledge, both cars have been scrapped.

There definitely is one 2-door Morris Eight in Mumbai - green and black if i'm not mistaken. Have seen her at rallies till very recently.

Here's a picture of my brother with Grandmother's old Morris in 1960. Not sure if it belongs more in the Nostalgic Family Cars thread or this, so shall give a link there as well. Unless I've already done that before; don't remember now and so the post may be deleted if considered unsuitable.

The car looks good, congratulations.

It appears to be on display at a show - can you share pictures of the other cars too? Thanks.

Karl,

That was one car show organized by Karavali Utsav ( coastal trade fair) there was only 10 cars including my Austin 10, Morris 8 and Willys CJ3B.
The other cars were Standard Avon special of Anil Soans, Morris Riley, Ford A, Jonga,Standard 10, and couple of jeeps.

As I was very busy with my cars, explaining people's queries, couldn't click much photo's, will try to post couple.

Dussey,

Thank you very much........

regards
Girish
