The Morris Oxford III was the third upgrade of the newly modelled post-war Morris Oxford designed by Sir Alec Issigonis. Announced in 1956 and updated for production in 1957, the Series III now had a new fluted bonnet and smaller tailfins and a two-tone finish was optional.
Production lasted until 1959, which gives an indication of the date of this Police version, registered LRJ 499, as used by Salford City Police.
The four-door Police car is decorated in the two-tone colour scheme of black and white body and features a white panel on the driver and front passenger sides, on which the colourful Salford City Crest features prominently.
Sporting white wheels and the characteristic Morris Oxford radiator grille finished in silver, the car is devoid of the usual Police roof beacons, lights or any other Police markings.
