TA 6850 in its moorland green livery has been a common site on club tours and runs in recent years. This Bullnose Morris has obviously undergone a full restoration in the past and is now in good usable condition as preferred by enthusiasts.

Powered by a Hotchkiss 4 cylinder in-line side valve engine producing 11.9hp in standard form. However, this engine is set-up with a “Ricardo” type turbulent cylinder head and fitted with an SU carburettor; an accepted modification and probably envied on club runs! The spark is produced from a Lucas GA4 magneto. It has a three speed gearbox with a gate on the floor indicating 1st 2nd 3rd lifting the small lever for reverse. On the bulkhead is a period bulb holder and an enot grease gun.

The interior is very inviting with its deep button seats and wooden cappings to the top rail. A comprehensive polished wood dashboard consisting of: a Lucas ignition/lights with a built in ammeter, Smiths speedometer with matching time clock, large Lucas starter button, Morris Eureka oil gauge, gravity fed fuel gauge and a Lucas rotating dash light. Bulb horn and an ash tray incorporating a vesta case and pipe holder – I did say comprehensive!

Wing mounted Lucas headlights are fitted with “bullseye” type scuttle side lamps. Rolling on beaded edge wheels with Dunlop Cord 710 x 90 on the rear and Waymaster Cord 710 x 90 on the front. All tyres are in good condition.

This is one for the discerning light car enthusiast.
