1927 Morris Oxford Flatnose 4 Seat Tourer
In September 1926 Morris unveiled the Bullnose's successor; the Flatnose. The latter derived its name from the new flat fronted radiator, which gave the car a modern, not an Edwardian, appearance and also cooled the engine better. This Oxford is a very rare model, and only a handful of Oxford Flatnose 4 Seat Tourers are left in the country. This is without a doubt, a magnificent example that has had thousands spent on mechanical restoration in recent years. There is a video present with the history, showing the engine rebuild, and there are invoices for in excess of £4500 for more recent mechanical work. The original engine ticks over and runs beautifully, and the general driving of the vehicle is first class. The Oxford has a lovely leather upholstery and the weather equipment has been trimmed by a reputable upholsters in West Yorkshire. Very hard to find.
