Originally only 11 of these were made for the police. This is the only example still in existance (it used to belong to the chief constable at Staffordshire) the current owner says these were not popular with the police (heavier & slower than equivalent Wolseley models) this car is capable of 20-25mpg & a top speed of 100+mph

1) Why would the Chief Constable of Staffordshire (at the time Colonel G W R Hearn) have had a car that was registered in Worcestershire for his official vehicle?
2) Since the Morris Six was built as a cheaper, stripped out version of the Wolseley Six-Eighty, it would hardly have been heavier. It did, however, have only one carburettor instead of the Wolseley's twin set-up, reducing the power of the mighty 2215cc engine from 72bhp to just 70. Some difference.
