From British Leyland Chronicles

British Leyland Chronicles The UK Morris Marina range at launch in spring 1971. Only 1.8 models had a long horizontal rectangle set into the radiator grille - body-colour except on TC models (where it was black incorporating mesh grilles either side of the central TC badge, which were outlined in red).
Jayashankha Hulangamuwa Hw cn u go abt conatruction sites in one of these?
Sharon Edwards If you drive along the roads between the JCB factories between Wrexham & Uttoxeter, you still see those registration plates in use on their company vehicles.
Barrie Wills As much as he clearly admired the Marina, the frugal Joseph Cyril Bamford acquired a brand new three-wheeled Reliant Robin as his preferred vehicle for daily commuting from and to his home and the Uttoxeter plant in the mid '70s.
Neil Ferguson-Lee JCB still use those registrations and, as an aside, I think that the young man on the right who is shaking hands might be a very young Sir Anthony Bamford.
Roger Ford I had a 1.8TC as my last company car. With the MGB engine it was a beast in a straight line but corners and roundabouts in the wet needy a tippy toes approach..
David Harrison Wondering if canny old Joe actually paid anything for those Marinas, given the amount of BL diesels they were consuming back then for the 3CII/3CX Backhoes and other red and yellow finery being built at that time. Looks like it was taken at the now levelled Uttoxeter plant as Rocester wouldn't have been open by then?
David Harrison Had Rover 800's from 88 to late 90's, nowadays Mercedes-Benz and Insignias. I was told the 800's white was actually a special factory order as it was off shade to the listed colour.
Claire Stocker An era where even a driver's wing mirror was a luxury item!! 😀
Billy Hutchinson A friend had a Marina 1.3 and I had the 1.8 Super. Mine would run up to 101 mph and the 1.3 would only climb to 92mph
Gavin Howells JCBs number plate collection must be worth a fortune on its own.
Andrew Edwards Had a 1.3 marina coupé in harvest gold I liked it unfortunately it had an argument with a skip lorry and didn't win but must of been quite safe in the day as I came out of it unscathed
Alistair Shaw My dad won'ted to get me a new car as he was fed up with the cars I was all ways working On to keep going so it came down to a new jubilee marina or a ford escort 1600 gt in red but u know which one I went for only thing was it had 64 foults no pdi I think it went back three times
Mick Driver I wonder if these were white or yellow?
Phil Dunster Love mine...
Sarah Jones Hubby had a 1800 automatic in harvest gold, what a tank but fun
Kev Clarke John Moses does that reg on the left look familiar?
Mark Mattock They were really shit cars!
Steve Wilson Poor buggers

Matt Fowles Only about a year and a half but it'll be off of it for a little while yet!
James Prince Is the offset on the rear wheels higher than the front? If so, to compensate for a wider (TR7?) axle?

Morris Marina Owners Club and Morris Ital Register The car is in North Wales
Ian Williams Beautiful. Had so many Marinas & Itals when I was much younger, really wished I'd held on to some of them. If I was in a position to have myself a toy, this would be home with me.
Andrew Klute Where are you located
Retro-Motoring That's lovely.
