Feature Car: Daniel Cox’s 1936 Morris 8 Tudor

22 Mar

Now for something a little different! Novocastrian (someone from Newcastle, Australia, for the uninitiated) Daniel Cox built this way-cool 1936 Morris 8, inspired by the exaggerated proportions and out-there thinking of legends like Ed Roth. His wild creation is certainly a fitting testament to the twisted mind of the ‘Big Daddy’ and you’ll be able to read all about it’s journey from junk heap to hero in issue 13 of Heavy Duty Hot Rods, on-sale now.

Powered by a tunnel-rammed 350ci SBC and T350 (the venerable combo), the little British tudor must feel a bit like a go-kart on the road, but somehow Daniel has found a tasty visual balance with the car – a car that also boasts wicked Caddy tail lights, neat flames and gorgeous billet rims. Daniel scored an excellent location for the shoot at an old, still operational factory just outside of Newcastle that we dearly hope to be able to use again in the future. Don’t think for a second we’re gonna tell you where this one is!
