I stumbled across this charming 1925 Morris Oxford Long Wheelbase “Bullnose” Tourer auctioned by H and H at the Chateau Impney sale in Droitwich Spa, Worcestershire, England back in 2014. In the auction catalog I spotted this picture showing the most charming dashboard pipe holder and ash tray. I can see it now, a gentleman motoring down a narrow country lane, wearing a tweed jacket and cap, pipe clenched between his teeth. How very 1920s British!
