Unfortunately a lot of Morris tourers have fallen in wrong hands in India and are today gone beyond getting them restored back to originality.

Notice how much the mudguards have been changed in the Kerala car, would be very very difficult to get the original bodyline back..ofcourse if one wanted to!!
I do remember the year 1993 when i was in 10th class, chanced to see the Morris 8 tourer (1924). The owner refused to sell on grounds that I should finish my Engineering and then I can have it. The sad part, after my studies in 1998 I went back only to fount that the beauty has been sold for 32 K to some hyderabad gentelmen .

few other morris 8 were left to rot and were never sold, Chor bazzar guys were at all time high those years.
