MORRIS COWLEY-SIX/FIFTEEN-SIX

Saloon, 4-light coupé.

Replacement for the Major, with lower-slung bodies and new cruciform chassis; otherwise much as before. Engine returns to 14.9hp, though. No tourer and only one coupé variant - an attractive four-light model. Renamed Fifteen-Six for short model year. Recognition point for Fifteen-Six is that lamp support bar passes behind radiator honeycomb, rather than in front of it as on Cowley-Six. Had the older 'L' type engine, still something of a poor relation to the Oxford Six with its more modern 'Q' type unit, but a good seller all the same.
