Formerly the property of the late Alan Withey . the president of
the London Vintage Taxi Association

Morris-Commercial began building London Taxis to comply with
Metropolitan Police regulations in 1928. The G2SW 'Senior-Six'
introduced in 1938 is unusual in being one of only two models of
London taxi to have a six-cylinder engine; its predecessor. the
Morris-Commercial G2S 'Junior-Six being the other. The engine of
this taxi is an overhead valve Morris unit and mated to a
four-speed synchromesh gearbox. a worm drive rear axle and
rod-operated brakes. The body is the standard factory landaulet
manufactured by Morris Bodies Ltd. and trimmed in leather/cloth
with leather seat facings. It is thought that less than 100
Morris-Commercial G2SW taxis were made before the war halted
production and this example is one of only three known to have
survived making it incredibly rare.

Information supplied by the London Vintage Taxi Association
www. lvta. co. uk

The taxi is quite sound and it appears some of the
paintwork has been refreshed in places. hardly surprising taking
into account the vehicle is 78 years old. Complete with a Halda
taximeter (correct for the period) this Morris-Commercial is a true
part of British motoring and tourism heritage. Ideal for use in the
film industry. as a wedding car or to enhance an interesting
collection of cars.

Interested parties should note that whilst this pre-war London
Taxi runs. it is thought there is possibly a sticking valve in the
engine which could be a result of lack of use in recent years.
