Morris Motors limited, a privately owned company, formed in 1919. Incredibly by 1926 it's production represented 42 percent of the British car industry. One off coach built cars were rare by Morris and it’s with great delight that can offer this wonderful example.
This rare Morris was purpose built by the company for a London judge on the Oxford Circuit. This is a true one off, the body being raised by 150-200 mm higher than standard, widened axle and rear wings with indents in the wings to give the rear doors maximum opening for easy access. Ironically the rear seats are raised to give a seating position of height and superiority, much as the judge himself would have been used to in his place of session.
Other unusual aspects include, opening roof and a unique suspension set up using Horstman coil suspension, and probably the only Morris in existence to have this fitted. All modifications were carried out to enable the judge to proceed from his chambers to court while dressed in his ceremonial wig and full canonicals.
The exterior is certainly striking and the sheer magnificence of the body certainly catches your eye. There are nicer features all around the body, including the luggage rack and protection bars to the rear, the running board storage box, the windscreen air horn, the scuttle air vent etc etc.
The true beauty of this car is realised as soon as you look inside, the blue cloth interior has finished to a very high standard, it is fluted to the seats and there are charming door pockets also fitted. The sliding roof is also a wonderful feature, the sheer size of it really makes you feel as if you are in a open car, and luckily it is easily operated incase of inclement weather.
The body has been previously removed for the purpose of chassis restoration, all large components, blasted and professionally painted. Engine and all mechanical items refurbished, new clutch, wiring, new radiator core, brakes, tyres and tubes.
The interior professionally re-upholstered, new nickel plated radiator cowl and bright work, glass upgraded to laminate and all the woodwork refinished to a high standard.
To finish the car has had a full re-wire and a re-spray in blue over black. To accompany the Morris is a substantial history file, and photographic restoration record and current V5C.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a unique and historically important Morris Oxford, comprehensively restored at vast expense and ready to enjoy
