WHY I LOVE MY 1100/1300

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling - IAN AND DAWN KENNEDY

Ian and Dawn have owned their Mor­ris 1300 MkIII for three years, along­side a Mor­ris 1100 MkI. Says Ian: ‘We’ve owned scores of them over the years – too many to re­mem­ber. They’re per­fectly ca­pa­ble of be­ing used all year round. We’ve taken them from Land’s End to John o’Groats and over to France. They can keep up with mod­ern traf­fic, of­fer good fuel econ­omy, han­dling and all-round vis­i­bil­ity plus they’re easy to park. What more could you want?’ If the name sounds fa­mil­iar it’s be­cause the Kennedys run Hy­dra­gas and Hy­dro­las­tic Ser­vice, which re­fur­bishes the sus­pen­sion dis­plac­ers. Ian adds: ‘No pro­vi­sion was made to re­vive the dis­plac­ers but we’ve worked out a so­lu­tion that al­lows these cars to ride like new. What we do will hope­fully keep these cars on the road for years to come.’
