1976 Morris Marina in Ingland

The Morris Marina is a caur manufactured bi the Morris division o Breetish Leyland in the UK throughout the 1970s, which wis a period o great turbulence an difficulty for the Breetish caur industry. It wis kent in some markets as the Austin Marina, Leyland Marina, an Morris 1.7.

The model haes been widely identified as symptomatic o the problems facing the industry at that time, with poor build quality, handling likened to a "skip on wheels" an ootdated design. The 1980 replacement for the Marina, the closely related Ital, received similar criticism. The Marina haes been described as ane o the worst caurs o all time, although it wis ane o the maist popular caurs in Breetain throughout its production life.
