to the flat-fronted radiator with the appearance of the
1927 season cars (now generally referred to by old car enthusiasts
With the new radiator came a redesigned chassis with an
upswept rear end to accommodate the under-slung semi-elliptic
The same basic 'Hotchkiss type' of engine continued on
from the Bullnose of previous years in 11.9 h.p. And 13.9
h.p. forms as applicable. Wheels of the artillery type differed
in size and design, the Cowley had three stud wheels while
the Oxford had five stud fixings.
Oxford bodies with a taller radiator than the Cowley, had
a styling line which ran the whole length of the car body
starting at the bonnet. Boxed type mudguards were fitted
until 1929 season when a pressed rounded design was introduced.
No 4-cylinder Oxford cars were made after the end of the
1929 season although a small number of remaining stocks
were sold as 1930 models.
