IOTW no. 690

By August 11, 2023IOTW

Colmore Depot were a Birmingham based Morris and Wolseley main dealer throughout the thirties decade. (they also had locations elsewhere) Here is a view of one of their Birmingham showrooms displaying both new and used models alongside one another. The photo was taken during the 1934 season as the new car prices are from that model year. On the right is a 1934 Morris Minor Sliding-head Saloon, its price ticket showing £130, while further along the line is a new Wolseley Nine listed at £179. The ‘used’ 1933 season Minor Special Coupe with its Birmingham registration of OJ 9650 has an asking price of just £118, quite a discount from its new price a year earlier of £165.  There are at least three forum members with Minors carrying OJ prefixes, all of which are likely to have originally been sold through a Colmore Depot dealership.
