Export Model wide track Oxford, 1928 to 1931.

It is pictured from somewhat above and this has the effect of reducing the apparent depth of the radiator, but the three groups of louvres on the bonnet side suggest Oxford rather than Cowley, at least from the pictures I have seen. Im also ruling out the Empire Oxford as the subject car doesnt seem long enough and the Empire Oxford was a relative failure in terms of sales.

Unless anyone has better evidence.

I see nothing to cause a change of opinion. Locally made bodywork? It does not look like the factory two seater with dicky, which was not a factory option on the Empire Oxford either.

The roadster body was most likely built in Australia. Might be Holden but not necessarily.
