MORRIS TEN-SIX 1934-1935

The name of the Morris Ten-Six is a misnomer as the rating of the model was actually 12 horsepower. Nevertheless, the name chosen is understandable when it is realised that the Ten-Six models carried indentical bodies to the Ten-Four range but on a longer chassis. The additional length allowed for a slightly longer engine compartment.

Changes in the specification of the 1935 Ten-Six models followed those made to the 4-cylinder contemporary such as the provision of a 'Rollsvisor' sun visor in the closed models, a right -hand accelerator pedal position, the change in the handbrake design from the previous years centre button release type, a folding centre section to the rear bumper, and larger section tyres on smaller diameter wheels.

In addition to the open models, Saloon, Coupe, and Traveller Saloon (which was basically a standard saloon body with a larger door in the rear panel-and only produced for the 1934 season), a Special Sports model was available which boasted a modified and tuned engine with high lift camshaft and twin S.U. carburetors.
