Information about Morris

Morris Motors, a cornerstone of British automotive history, was founded in 1913 by William Morris in Oxford. This brand, heralded for its significant impact on the UK car industry, launched with the “Bullnose” Morris, a distinctive model that set the foundation for mass car production in the UK. Throughout the decades, Morris carved out a reputation for reliability and affordability, with models like the Morris Minor becoming synonymous with British automotive culture.

In the post-war era, Morris merged with Austin to form the British Motor Corporation (BMC), leading to innovations such as the creation of the iconic Mini in 1959, a revolutionary design that outlived the Morris name itself. The brand’s influence waned in the latter part of the 20th century, with the Morris name being discontinued in 1984 as the company underwent various mergers and restructurings, ultimately being absorbed into what is now known as MG Motor UK, owned by China’s SAIC Motor. Today, the legacy of Morris Motors lives on primarily in classic car circles, where its historical models are celebrated for their style and simplicity, reflecting a bygone era of British motoring excellence. Morris’s contribution to the automotive industry remains a subject of reverence and nostalgia among enthusiasts.
