Morris Marina Wiki

The Morris Marina is a car that was manufactured by Austin-Morris division of British Leyland from 1971 until 1980. It was sold in some markets as the Austin Marina, the Leyland Marina and the Morris 1700.It was a popular car in Britain throughout its production life, narrowly pipping the Ford Escort to second place in the UK car sales table in 1973 and regularly taking third or fourth place in other years. The car was also exported throughout the world, including North America, and assembled with varying degrees of popularity in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Malaysia. According to various sources, the Marina ranks among the worst cars ever built.The 1980 replacement for the Marina, the closely related Ital, was essentially a body facelift and a change to the front suspension that replaced lever dampers with telescopic dampers in 1982 for the final two years of production but still retained torsion bars, to address criticism from the motoring press. Still, it sold reasonably well in the home market.
