Luke Johnstone's '72 Morris

My Dad bought this in the mid-1990s when he was down on his luck. It was a 1750cc automatic one-owner with only 16,000 miles on it.

He drove the Marina around for a few years until he got back on his feet and once he did, he just didn’t get around to selling it; people aren’t exactly lining up to buy them!

After he upgraded, he took it on the odd Bay to Birdwood and that’s it, so when he died two years ago, I kept it. It’s up to 42,000 miles, it reminds me of Dad and it’s a testament to getting back on your feet when life knocks you down!
