1927-29 Oxford

Introduction

Apart from sharing engine, gearbox and rear axle in common with the bullnose model it replaced, this Oxford featured a new design chassis and suspension, with modified braking and steering. Cosmetically the most significant changes were the replacement of the “D fronted” radiator, commonly known as the “bullnose” by a flat radiator and the loss of the battery and the fuel can from the running boards. This car subsequently became known as the “flatnose”.
