The Morris Oxford Series II is now a rare sight on the roads and this 1955 example must be one of the lowest mileage survivors in the world as it has only cover 18499 miles from new.
It was supplied new in November 1955 by Central Motors of Narberth, Pembrokeshire to Mr S Davies of Trelech who used it until 1961 when he handed it down to his daughters in nearby Carmarthen. They used it until 1978 when it was parked in a dry barn where it remained in storage until 2006 when it was recommissioned and taken for an MOT which it passed without problem.
It was then placed back into storage until 2014 when it was bought by a local classic car enthusiast who recommissioned it again for the road. He used it for a season attending local shows until selling it in 2016 to a classic car collector in Malvern.
We have had the pleasure of selling five of this collectors cars in the past few years as he likes to use them for a season or two and then sell in order to to buy a model he has not owned before.
While out on the road, the car changes gear well and the engine pulls smoothly.
The underside is sound as can be seen in the photographs above and the bodywork reasonably solid but while it looks presentable from a few yards away, there is room for improvement to the paintwork.
The history file contains the current V5, the original buff Log Book showing the ownership history, a series of MOTs from the early 1960s until 1977 showing the low increase in annual mileage, the original Morris Warranty document, a copy of Pembrokeshire County Council original Motor Registration, the current MOT, some invoices and a series of photographs showing the car being removed from storage.
Although the car is now MOT exempt as it was manufactured prior to 1960, it has an MOT which runs until June 2018 and the car will be licensed for 12 months at no cost from the date of sale as it qualifies for the Historic Taxation class.
According to the web site, http://www.howmanyleft.co.uk, there are very few Morris Oxford Series II Saloons left in existance and even fewer still on the road.
Prospective buyers are welcome to come and view the car in our Leeds showroom.
