The Cambridge-Oxford Owners Club is proud to be celebrating the centenary of Morris car production.

The spring of 1913 saw the start of production of William Morris’s first car, the Morris Oxford, at the price of £175. 

The centenary of this major British motoring manufacturer will be celebrated in style.
Planning has been ongoing for two years  and a number of significant events are already well advanced.

The Morris Minor Owners Club will be hosting a major International Centenary event in conjunction with their  National Rally.
This will be held at Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire on the weekend of the 15th/16th June 2013.
In addition,  a major display of Morris Vehicles will be on show in a specially designated area at the Beaulieu Spring Autojumble
and there will be a special Centenary Stand at the NEC in November 2013. 
Other clubs including the Morris Register and the Bullnose Morris Club will be staging major events as well.
