 A rare picture of the Oxford Silent Six

 

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.
