MORRIS MARINA £998
Back to basics in an uncomplicated car designed for reliable service and easy maintenance. Front engine and rear drive with a rear axle on half-elliptic springs make it a strictly conventional design but the coupe comes cheaper than the saloon, not dearer and there is a choice of two engine sizes. The torsion bar front suspension was developed from that of the Morris Minor.
MORRIS MARINA ESTATE £1,236
Only the 1800 engine figures on the estate version of the Marina. With the 58 cubic feet of space loaded with 900 lb. of cargo you need power to haul it. Rear suspension is up-rated, the passenger area is carpeted and the loading floor is covered with a washable synthetic material. There are finger-tip controls for wipe-wash and lane-change signal.

MORRIS 1800 MARK III £1,298
Rods instead of cables make it easier to find the gears on these big four-cylinder front-drive models and there is now a central pull-up handbrake between the front seats. Heater controls are improved, seats are trimmed in expanded vinyl and there are pile carpets. The grille is now matt black with fine chromium bars. Twin-carburetter models have been dropped.
