Morris Commercial Cars Ltd, originally located at Soho, and latterly at Adderley Park, Birmingham, was the commercial vehicle division of William Morris’s Nuffield Group. A well-known advertising slogan used during the 1930s was ‘British to the Backbone’. The CS series had a 6 cylinder engine.
This truck was bought new by the Waikato Valley Dairy Company. It was transferred in 1937 to the NZ Co-op Dairy Company and in the same day to the Farmers Dairy Federation Invercargill. It was traded to A. Russell & Co in June 1946 and sold to Christies at Thornbury.
