Although I think this is not a saloon, the depth of the roof and front windscreen suggest one of the quite numerous shooting breaks built in the forties to avoid the 66 2/3% purchase tax imposed by the car hating government of the time, on vehicles costing over £1,000 pre tax. The breaks were considered to be commercial vehicles, thus free of purchase tax.

I think that it is reasonable to call this a Fourteen, on numbers built.

johnfromstaffs wrote XS 654x would be Burgh Council of Paisley 1948. XS 654 would be back in the 1920s so a cherished plate.

JCB wrote Suppose the number could be 4 numerals like XS6546. The first five figures are clearly visible.

It is a six digit plate - XS 654x. XS 6548 was a white MG Tourer registered in Dec 48 on some check sites, but not DVLA. Other 654x long gone, ditto just 654.
