We are delighted to offer this superb driving, very well presented Morris Oxford onto the market. We sold the Morris to the last owner in the Lake District back in 2015 and prior to this had spent some time in the Beamish Collection and is believed to be one of few Oxford Doctors Coupe survivors. The Coupe is a rare car, but this model being the more powerful Oxford is incredibly desirable and is a real collector's piece.
The Morris comes with a comprehensive history file that includes previous owner correspondence detailing that the Morris was discovered in an old barn in Bovingdon Green near Chesham in Buckinghamshire back in the 1960's. The Oxford needed major restoration and it was soon purchased by an engineer and taken to his engineering business in Marlow. Some work was carried out by the owner, but his growing business meant he did not get chance to finish the Oxford so some years later he sold the car and eventually, by the early 1980's the Morris was fully rebuilt and put into lovely condition throughout. We have photographs of the car in various stages including several images of the rolling chassis with the body removed. Mechanicals were fully rebuilt, the body rebuilt and the upholstery re-trimmed and restored as necessary.
We have MOT certificates dating back to the mid 1990's and the vehicle now records around 10000 miles. In 1995 the mileage was 6500 so we know the Morris has had very low use in the recent years. Our customer has had the car for almost three years and the Morris has proven totally reliable and very easy to own. Prior to this, the Morris had successfully completed the Beamish run in the North East and had various work carried out by MacDonald Racing in County Durham. This work includes stripping the diff and replacing the crown wheel and pinion. The Morris has come back to us in strong mechanical order with a lovely sweet engine and sound gearbox. ML 9361 starts well, drives incredibly well and is a fabulous fun on the road.
Our Oxford presents very well and has nicely aged since restoration. The car was clearly rebuilt to a very high standard and we can see that from checking the vehicle over and seeing the level of detail and work carried out when it was restored. The paint work has a lovely aged look with nice older deep paint and the body is straight with excellent panels. The upholstery was re-trimmed many years ago now but retains a lovely patina. ML 9361 is a very honest, rare and collectable Oxford that can be driven with confidence.
