Vehicle story

What a great little car. Drive Maine is very proud to introduce our newest member of the fleet, “Morris”. It was perhaps a stroke of luck that we found him. Located no more than a football field away from our doorstep, hidden away in a storage shed, Morris sat for nearly ten years waiting to be discovered. We only knew of his existence when the door to the shed was opened for the first time in years. Morris was remarkably preserved, however, long-term storage can be excruciatingly hard on motor vehicles. Layers of dirt, dust and copious amounts of bird droppings have exacted their toll on the paint. However, unlike most derelict cars, the engine, transmission, rear end, and interior were spared and had been thoughtfully prepared for an extended slumber.
Drive Maine exhumed Morris in July 2019 and began the slow task of returning him to the open road. Methodically inspecting, lubricating, cleaning, and replacing vital parts such as brakes, ignition components, fluids, and wiring it was time to start him up. Only after a few attempts did Morris finally decide it was time to be awake again. He proved to be resilient to have been all but forgotten. Now we find Morris, once again running strong and cruising the roads as he was always intended to do. True, he bears the scars of his long sleep, though he has undergone a fresh turquoise paint job we purposely left a few dings and imperfections because his scars, like our own, are a part of his story…and what a story he can tell, and we at Drive Maine invite you to add to it as well.
Morris is available for limited Capital Area Self-Drive excursions at the present time due to the extremely high price of fuel and oil. Photoshoots, Weddings, and Chauffeured Event rentals are limited to the mid coast region.
Morris is powered with a flawless 1275cc engine and smooth 4-speed ribcase transmission and has seating for four passengers!
Please note that chauffeur rentals are custom services that vary from client to client. The price stated is a starting point and may not reflect the final agreed-upon amount.

I rented the car for my mother who had one in college and it did not disappoint. Our plans were a little bit up in the air and we made several changes to our pick up and drop off locations and time and they were amazingly accommodating. The car was ready when we arrived and I received an excellent briefing on what to expect and how to proceed. The car was clean and well maintained. Because it was raining when we picked it up the top was up and we discussed how to put it down. The next day when I went to put it down I was a little unsure on how to do it. They were great and facetimed me to figure it out. Can not say enough good things about this experience.

Smiles from ear to ear! One of the best days I've ever spent with my family. Renting this car was a gift to all of us.

This little car brings joy wherever it goes, as evidenced by all of the smiles and waves we got from onlookers as we tooled around in it. Our family had an unforgettable day driving around Camden, Rockland and Rockport and we can't say enough about the customer service and communication we received. You definitely need to know how to drive a manual and be comfortable with driving an older car with unique features, but this really added to the experience for us. The car is a nice size and we were able to install two high-back boosters in the back row so our kids could ride safely. We were also able to fit a cooler and several beach bags in the trunk. What a fun and memorable experience - we would absolutely rent from Drive Maine again!
