Details Specification Condition Report

In recent years this car has formed part of a large collection and as such has received little or no use and an element of recommissioning is to be expected to return it to the road once again. Your inspection pre-sale is welcomed and encouraged to appreciate the potential of this rarely offered motor car which is strictly sold as seen.

  • By the late 1940s, Morris desperately needed a modern, mid-sized, family saloon, and in 1948 they launched the new Oxford MO
  • The Oxford featured an all unit-construction, four-door body, which had a similar appearance to the equally new Morris Minor MM
  • It featured torsion bar front suspension with rack and pinion steering just like the Morris Minor, and its brakes were hydraulically operated drums all round
  • The car was powered by an all-new side valve 1476cc four-cylinder engine fed by an SU 1 1/4" carburettor
  • History file, NI registration, photos of restoration etc
