Morris Cowley Ute
This Morris Oxford Cowley ute is undergoing a full restoration at Marlborough Classic and Custom Restoration Ltd. The ute was originally purchased new in 1954 by the customer’s father (now 87 years old), and he clearly recalls trips to Christchurch from their farm in Oamaru in the ute, as well as learning to drive in it, along with his two brothers. They also use the trusty Morris for rabbit shooting, and spent many memorable hours searching the paddocks for game in it.
The Oxford is being restored to original condition, apart from an updated J15 Datsun four-cylinder motor and a modern colour scheme.
