WOLSELEY OXFORD HIRE CAR

Taxi, limousine.

Oddball made by Wolseley to Morris-Commercial specification - engine has affinities (albeit distant ones) with the old 14/28 Morris-Oxford, there's an underslung worm back end, brakes are rod-operated mechanicals, and wheels are good old 1929 artillery pattern. Most were London taxicabs, but a few six-light limousines made. Surprisingly, there's a synchromesh.
