Morning all,

Yes, another old estate car - but one that's worthy of salvation, after years of inactivity - a rare Oxford Traveller. While the Companion posted yesterday has already received "the works" in terms of restoration, today's little beauty is waiting for someone to lavish time and on its faded bodywork and aged mechanicals. At least it's all together, and hasn't been reduced to a pile of rust and splintered wood befor being given up on, a fate of many projects like this.

That is as rare as a rare thing! Don't think I've seen one since I was an apprentice in the fifties.
But I wonder why they only made a two door model?

Curious... how did it get an "A" plate as these were only issued in London in 1963 I believe.

Were the A plates not also used for cars asset stripped for their nicer numbers before the age related plates came along?

Yes, Peter, that is likely. We call it car rape!
