Morris Motors Limited was founded in 1919, taking over the assets of another manufacturer – WRM Motors Ltd. Although it was merged many times, Morris remained as a name until 1984 when the British Leyland Austin Rover Group chose to focus on the Austin brand name instead.
Originally starting as a bicycle manufacturer, Morris’ forebear WRM made the first Morris car in 1912 – the Morris Bullnose. A coupe was added the following year and the range grew from there.
In the interwar years, Morris developed a reputation of creating high quality vehicles coupled with a habit of keeping costs of ownership low. This lead to great success for the brand and in 1925 Morris accounted for 42% of all cars sold in the UK. This was always going to decline obviously, but by 1935 they still held a 35% market share.
Morris agreed to build and manage a huge factory in Castle Bromwich, specifically to manufacture a certain aircraft – this was in fact the Supermarine Spitfire, so Morris played a very significant part in the Second World War.
Post war, the company created a range of affordable cars for the masses- most notably the Morris Minor and the Oxford.
In 1952 the brand merged with the Austin Motor Company to form the British Motor Company (BMC) which in turn became part of the British Leyland Motor Corporation in 1968 and part of the nationalised British Leyland in 1975.
The brand’s final model was the Morris Ital – a Giorgetto Giugiaro designed mid-sized saloon car to take over from the Morris Marina. Not one of the design houses finest hours…
