This delightful early Morris Bullnose Cowley was last sold by us in 2010 to a long term customer of ours in York. Over the past five year it has had very little use but has been regularly started and kept garaged and on blocks with the wheels removed. It has been continuously cleaned; well cared for and as when it left us five years ago, it starts instantly and runs beautifully. When we sold the car, we fully prepared it and spent over £500 alone on having the switchbox overhauled and steering box reconditioned with specialists 'The Cooke Group'. Prior to arriving with us it had the magneto and dynastart rebuilt and re-wired.
EL 6583 was first registered on 29th November 1922 and is known as the Model MC2, 2-Seat Tourer. It also has the useful rear dickey seat that can carry two passengers or plenty of luggage. The car is in charming condition with a lovely patina. It is an older restoration that has been meticulously kept and paintwork and bodywork are of a very high standard. The upholstery was re-trimmed many years ago and today looks outstanding. The hood is in excellent order and the Morris presents superbly throughout with a nicely aged feel.
On the road the Bullnose is fantastic with a lovely quiet, smooth 1548cc 11.9hp engine. The gearbox is also smooth and changes up and down and very nicely. The car has rear wheel brakes only and with the rebuilt steering box it drives as good as anyone could expect of a Bullnose. Driving the car is easy, great fun and the Morris is usable, reliable and is very strong mechanically. EL 6583 is clean, presentable and ready to be driven on a regular basis. These very early cars are fast appreciating and rare models in this condition can prove difficult to find.
"At the same time I purchased a 2002 Jaguar XK8 Coupe from them as my "Fun Car", both these vehicles have remained faultless and a joy to own.In September 2015 I made my third purchase from them, a 192..."
