A GREAT MARQUE OUT OF GREAT BRITAIN –
Morris Motors Limited was a British motor vehicle manufacturing company formed in 1919 to take over the assets of William Morris’s WRM Motors Limited and continue production of the same vehicles
Though it merged into larger organisations in 1952, the Morris name remained in use until 1984, when British Leyland decided to concentrate on the more popular Austin brand. Until 2014 Morris Oxford vehicles (based on the 1954-59 Oxford) were manufactured with periodic enhancements in India by Hindustan Motors.Jaffles Stalletjie
Part of Morris’s manufacturing complex at Cowley, Oxford is now BMW Group’s Plant Oxford, headquarters of the MINI marque. One of the more recognizable Morris cars were the Morris “Woodie” Station wagons. Woodies were made by several manufacturers and we will run a feature on them at a later Stage.
The Morris name carried some of the most famous models in British Motoring History – Names like Morris Bullnose, Morris Oxford, Cowley, Minor and the amazing small Morris Mini will be seen at shows like the WestRand Car Show for many years to come.
The Westrand Car Show is a Classic Car Show. TO QUALIFY FOR ENTRANCE TO A COMPETITIVE CLASS, VEHICLES MUST HAVE BEEN BUILT OR REGISTERED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 1999 OR EARLIER. Only the first 180 QUALIFYING vehicles will receive a commemorative medallion. Any newer vehicle is welcome to be entered as a “non-competitive vehicle” and to be placed on show just because of “the spirit of motoring” and the desire to share the joy that your wheels bring you, with all of the rest of us. See the list of classes below and the entrance form.
Non-Competitive vehicles may enter at the gate on the day.Competition Classes Enter Your Vehicle
Die Westrand Car Show is ‘n klassieke motorskou. OM TE KWALIFISEER VIR TOEGANG tot ‘n kompeterende klas, moet voertuie vir die eerste keer in 1999 of vroeër gebou of geregistreer word. Slegs die eerste 180 KWALIFISERENDE voertuie sal ‘n gedenkmedalje ontvang. Enige nuwer voertuig is welkom om as ‘n “nie-mededingende voertuig” ingeskryf te word, en dit net te danke aan” die gees van motor” en die begeerte om die vreugde wat u wiele vir u bring, saam met ons almal te deel. Kyk na die lys van klasse hierbo en die ingangsvorm.
Nie-mededingende voertuie mag op die dag by die hek inteken.
