I received a call this morning from a friend in Ringwood to tell me that Jack Daniels has passed away. Jack, together with Reg Job,worked with Sir Alec Issigonis to develop the Morris Minor. Jack was also a key developer of the hydrolastic suspension found in the classic Mini.
You can learn more about that here...

Jack regularly attended the Dorset chaper Morris Minor Club affairs. He was unable to attend last years Christmas dinner due to health problems...he was in and out of nurseing care throughout the year.

With him goes a chapter in classic British motoring history..fortunately both the BBC and the Morris Minor Club have done extensive interviews with him so his legacy will be preserved.


Jack was 92.
