Further Info:

This delightful-looking `Flat Nose' Cowley Saloon is a 1930 example that's finished in the pleasing combination of Black four-door bodywork and Maroon interior trim. A previous show winner, it was apparently treated to an extensive `body off nut and bolt' restoration about eight years ago with, according to the car's history file, some £5,000 being spent on the interior refurbishment alone. In the vendor's words, `the black paintwork is of a similar calibre and the overall condition of this vintage Morris is a credit to the restorer'. The Cowley has covered just 1,364 miles since returning to the road and now seeks a new home. It is being offered complete with the aforementioned file and its original registration number, `MU 2544'. The move from Morris's distinctive `Bullnose' to the more conventional `Flatnose' radiator occurred in September 1926. The engine remained unchanged however, and was a 1548cc four-cylinder Hotchkiss-type unit manufactured in house by Morris Motors.
