Description

This delightful-looking `Bullnose' Tourer was the subject of an earlier restoration in c.1981, and comes complete with photos of the work carried out, as well as a large history file that includes: the original instruction book, brown log book, various invoices, plus a collection of old tax discs and MOTs. It is believed the venerable Morris featured in the `House of Elliot' TV programme and its characterful presentation includes period badges and various running board-mounted accessories. The model of `Bullnose' offered broke cover in September 1918. It was longer and stronger than its predecessor and capable of transporting up to five passengers. Initially it was powered by a 1548cc engine manufactured by the British branch of Hotchkiss. This was increased in capacity to 1802cc during 1923. The Oxford name reflected the city in which the car was built and the `Bullnose' moniker stemmed from the distinctive rounded top of the model's radiator.
