The Morris 48 Vs Punt Road Hill - John's Story

About 60 years ago I bought my first car and was driving up Punt Road Hill. After a good run at it in third gear, I changed down to second, slowing down as I tried my hardest to climb this almighty hill. But second gear was not going to do it. I had the car halfway up but realised it was not going to make it. I stopped the Morris 48 model and engaged it in first gear. Even then I only just made it to the top.
