All those cars,stashed away in a barn? I'd love to see them all restored back to their original glory.

Is the red car a 1938 Morris 8 series?

I think the blue one is a Morris 8 and the red one is a Morris 10.

Btw for anyone who is interested in one of these I saw one in pretty good condition on ebay india going for around 2 lakhs. Im sure the price could be got down as it was relisted a couple of times without anyone buying it.

Blue car is Morris 8 (30's) pre E series
Austin (baby) & other Austin 10 - 30's cars, honeycomb radiator grills chrome plated comes in Austin before 1932 and after 1932 it has painted radiator body color.
Ford A model seems early 30's model 4 cyl.

My family used to have all types of Austin cars in 70's.

I had seen Morris 8 similar model in Secunderabad in one garage
Red color and the owner said it is not for sale. I will post picture soon.
Another convertible Morris 8 seen, is under restoration near Hyderabad Gowliguda Bus Depot.

These Morris-8 series were successful cars of its times, there close compitators were : Ford Y (very similar in size), Austin-8, Standard-8

Not seen any Morris-8 in Vintage car rally in Hyd so far.
