1972 MOR­RIS MA­RINA SU­PER DELUXE

Unique Cars - - CONCOURS D’LEMONS – S.A -

MY DAD bought this in the mid1990s when he was down on his luck. It was a 1750cc au­to­matic one-owner with only 16,000 miles on it. He drove the Ma­rina around for a few years un­til he got back on his feet and once he did, he just didn’t get around to sell­ing it; peo­ple aren’t ex­actly lin­ing up to buy them!

Af­ter he up­graded, he took it on the odd Bay to Bird­wood and that’s it, so when he died two years ago, I kept it. It’s up to 42,000 miles, it re­minds me of Dad and it’s a tes­ta­ment to get­ting back on your feet when life knocks you down!
