Description

Originally the property of legendary BMC 'Works' rally driver, Don Morley, this UK-supplied, RHD, Quattro WR has remained on the family farm for 39-years and is on offer at No Reserve. Don Morley rose to fame in the rapidly growing sport of international rallying during the late 1950s, and became one of BMC’s most reliable works drivers in the 1960s. Invariably co-driven by his non-identical twin, Erle – Don was the smaller of the two – Morley was always associated with the big Healey 3000s that he drove to repeated victories in the GT category of the Alpine Rally. He also won three Coupes des Alpes and thus a special Coupe d’Argent. His professional rally career started when, after several years of driving rallies at both national and international level, he won the Tulip Rally with Erle in a privately entered Jaguar 3.4 in 1959. His exploits with BMC were not confined to Healeys, however, as he did several major events in a works Mini 850 getting one through to the finish of the Monte Carlo in 1960. In 1964, he temporarily forsook Healeys again for an MGB on the Monte Carlo where he won the GT class ahead of a works Porsche and subsequently co-drove in the Sebring 12-Hours of 1963. The Morley twins were virtually household names in the early sixties, frequently appearing in glorious black and white footage on the BBC News and at the cinema in Pathé News, however, their farm in Suffolk was always a priority particularly during Harvest when motorsport was firmly demoted to second place. When it came to selecting a road car, Don's rally background naturally influenced his choice and in 1984 he purchased a brand new 2,144cc in-line, five-cylinder, 10-valve Audi Quattro WR from Testwood Motors of Southampton. It was finished in Zermatt Silver with a Brazil Cloth interior and was fitted from new with a sunroof and a Blaupunkt Atlanta radio/cassette. In 1995 (the final Tax Disc expired on 30/11/1995), he passed it down to his son at 139,000 miles but he chose never to drive it, storing it in a corner of a barn until recently. The storage area didn't let in much daylight and the car appears to be in remarkably original condition under the dust, the interior in particular benefitting from being kept in favourable light conditions. It's supplied with its original wider alloys on original Pirelli P7Rs which are uncracked due to the dark storage, three keys and the history file containing numerous MOTs, invoices, drivers manuals etc. On offer at No Reserve, this amazing Quattro with a strong rally connection appears in good shape and would be great fun to recommission and detail prior to returning to the road.
