This was the first six cylinder Morris produced
and used an engine which shared as many components as possible
with the four cylinder Hotchkiss. Not surprisingly the
engine soon gained a reputation for crankshaft breakage.
Fewer than 50 were sold, mainly because, although
the chassis was nine inches longer, this was to accommodate
the extra length of the engine and there was no more room
for passengers than the cheaper Oxford.
