The Morris Isis re-emerged as a Series II version at the 1956 Motor Show. The Series II version had been restyled to include fins on the rear wings, revised rear lights and fluted bonnet sides. The column mounted gear change on the Series I was replaced by an unusual right hand floor mounted gear changer similar to the Riley Pathfinder. Production of the Series II ran from October 1956 to April 1958 during which 6,413 saloons and travellers were produced. The Isis is powered by a 2639cc six cylinder overhead valve engine with a four speed synchromesh gearbox.
This stunning Morris Isis was first registered on the 21st August 1957 and supplied by Morkel & Carnill of Nottingham. The Morris actually remained in the same family ownership from 1957 to 2004 and from 2005 to 2006 had a restoration costing in excess of £20,000.
495 AUU has featured in several magazine articles and is well known in club circles. The six cylinder Morris comes with an extensive history file including related articles, brochures, MOT certificates and invoices totalling over £20,000. The majority of work has been carried out by Poole Lane Classics of Kirk Hammerton which includes a full body restoration finished in two tone colours and an engine rebuild to include new pistons, bearings and unleaded head. The interior has been professionally re-trimmed and bright work has been re-chromed giving the Isis a stunning finish. With a recorded mileage of 54,400 and little over 2,000 miles since the engine rebuild, this Morris Isis is perfect for weekend use and showing. The car is a delight in every respect and both drives and presents in beautiful condition.
