1977 Teal 4-Seat Tourer
From a deceased estate; Morris Marina 1.8 twin carb engine; aluminium body; transferable number plate; for recommissioning following a period in storage
This aluminium-bodied Teal 4-Seater was built in 1989/90, as shown in an album of photos in the history file. The donor vehicle was a 1977 Morris Marina with a 1.8 twin carb engine, registration number ATU 502S. The V5C records it as a Teal Tourer and it now has a personalised plate, PIB 6397, which is transferable and goes with the car.
On offer here from a deceased estate, it has been in the current ownership since 2014. There is no real history with the car but an online MOT history check shows that it was last submitted for an MOT in April 2009 which it passed with no advisories, the mileage at that time being 6,505. It is now showing 6,853 miles on the odometer.
As you can see in the photos, the aluminium bodywork looks to be in very good shape and the paint finish is also good. The interior is also generally good and just needs a thorough cleaning. We are told that shortly before the auction, the car was fitted with a new battery, the spark plugs were cleaned, and it was soon coaxed into life, running nicely with no smoke or untoward noises. However, it cannot be driven because the clutch is stuck and the brakes need attention and we have not attempted to start it ourselves.
On offer here at a modest guide price, it shouldn’t take too much to get it back on the road where it belongs.
