I know in my loft I have a Mk1 Morris pressed steel grill. I’ve had it for years and I know I’m never going to use it. Are they worth anything?

I can’t remember the last time I saw one for sale but then I haven’t actively been looking. If they’re not sort after I’ll just leave it there and will eventually dig it out and put it on the wall of my garage. If there is any demand for it then I’ll take the time to hunt through the loft (it buried behind my Lego hoard) and pop it up for sale, better it go to someone who’ll use it then it just be hidden away in my loft

I know as with everything condition is everything. From memory it pretty straight and rust free but would need painting or re-chroming.
I should really find it out an put a picture up but it’s chuffing hot up there and I don’t really want to spend any time up there if I don’t have to

I've got one as well.

Some enthusiast drilled through the vertical slats to fit a makeshift water shield :roll:

I'd say my grill is in similar condition but minus the added holes

I'm trying to find somewhere to get mine chromed but it seems to be a bit of a minefield especially as I'm in N.Ireland!

I have a late 64 Morris SDL and I'm sure the grill was painted?

When the chrome is as rough as that I usually get them powder coated OEW.

I got some powder coated chrome but close up the pitting was still quite obvious.
