Up for auction is my 1972 Morris Marina manual 1.7lt 4cyl rwd sedan. A rare car in Australia & very unique. Sold with NO plates, NO RWC, NO rego. Non transferable club plates.
For almost a 50yo car, it drives very well & is very reliable. It has great fuel economy & power for an old girl.Mechanically it is very good. Solid motor/ good gearbox & clutch. A few minor oil leaks, mainly from the tappet cover. Recent work completed including carburetor repairs & fuel system work. Holds fluids & doesn't overheat. 4 speed manual gearbox. Throaty engine noise from factory (quite loud & fun). Solid diff. Suspension feels ok, pretty floaty from factory. No odd noises. Brakes work. All lights work. Instrument needles work, but a bit jumpy so the speedo is a bit hard to guage actual speed. All in all, a solid mechanical structure.
The body is fair/ average for its age. Paint has shine. The bonnet & boot lid are showing age. Someone keyed the bonnet near the windscreen. The boot paint is cracked & has some damage causing it to sit up on the drivers side.The rear quarters have clearcoat peel & evidence of old repairs. The doors & roof are not bad, & the guards have some paint chips etc but fairly straight. There is some surface rust below the windshield that has been touched up with a paintbrush. About the size of a 50c piece.It definitely has patina, but adds charm.Chrome work is great!
The interior is neat in appearance. The front seats have some damage low down & been tapped up. (Splitting in vinyl). The back seat has some sun damage on the top. The dash pad is great. Drivers carpet is a bit tatty.
Some vintage accessories include roof racks with old skies included, front & rear mudflaps, period stickers & original hubcaps with new chrome wheel rings. Bowls set also included.
All in all, a great overall classic rare vehicle. Its definitely not perfect, but it gets huge interest, everyone loves it!
