Footnotes

  • 'Very few new cars find a way straight to the heart of the motor user with the speed and completeness that attended the debut of the original Morris Oxford and later the Morris Cowley cars.' - Autocar, 2nd August 1919.

    One of the best known and most readily recognised vintage cars, the 'Bullnose' Oxford had its roots in the Edwardian era. The first examples, fitted with 8.9hp White & Poppe engines, were manufactured in 1913, embodying Morris' successful formula of offering technically unexciting but well built and well equipped cars at a bargain price. The Oxford and its close relation, the Continental-engined Cowley, evolved gradually, both models switching to engines made by Hotchkiss' Coventry subsidiary in 1919. A close copy of the Continental, the Hotchkiss engine was made in 1,548cc, 11.9hp form initially, a larger (1,802cc) 13.9hp version becoming available in 1923. A more conventional flat-fronted radiator replaced the distinctive 'Bullnose' type in late 1926, by which time four-wheel brakes had become standardised on the Oxford chassis. All-steel bodies, built under licence granted by the American Budd concern, were another new introduction that year. Easy to drive and maintain, the Oxford was Britain's most popular car prior to the arrival of the Austin Seven.

    Finished in maroon/black with beige leather interior, this Vintage-era 'flat rad' Oxford was purchased in 1999 by the vendor's father, who then carried out its restoration himself. 'SV 8269' is finished to a generally good standard and has been much enjoyed in the present enthusiast ownership, which has included attending many local shows with some concours successes. There is a good history file dating back to 1987, which contains numerous invoices for works carried out over the years. The car is offered with current MoT/tax and a V5 registration document.
