1929-32 G International taxi

Introduction

Taking advantage of changes introduced by 1927 taxi-cab design regulations, Morris Commercial developed the G International taxi-cab. This taxi was based on the 1927-29 Empire Oxford and used the same 15.9hp Morris Z engine. About 840 of these taxi-cabs were produced between 1929 and 1932.
