THE CCW VIEW
There’s a lot to like about Morris Cowleys. While they do have limitations, they’re a lot more usable and practical than many of their contemporaries. There’s a body option to suit most tastes, from the small coupés like this to rather more majestic four-door saloons. So long as you don’t mind living life at a somewhat slower pace, a Cowley can make a lot of sense as an alternative to the Austin Seven. Basic engineering and an inherent ruggedness are further bonuses – these are far from the fragile machines their age might suggest. Throw in an enthusiastic club and you’ve got a pre-war classic you can do much more with than just potter to the occasional show a few times each year.
