Specific Item Information: The Police were one of the main non-private users of the Morris Minor and here we see it registered AUL 669H from 1969/70, decorated in the familiar Police livery of the time: pale blue and white with royal blue/white Police graphics. The wheels and the vehicle interior are both mid grey. The external window surrounds are masked black while other external trim is finished in silver, providing lots of authentic detail for such a tiny replica.

Model Information: Factory painted and assembled, the Oxford Diecast line of metal vehicle models are 1:148 (British) N-Scale.

Prototype History:
The Morris Minor is a British car that made its debut at the Earls Court Motor Show, London, on 20 September 1948.[4] Designed under the leadership of Alec Issigonis, more than 1.6 million were manufactured between 1948 and 1972 in three series: the MM (1948 to 1953), the Series II (1952 to 1956), and the 1000 series (1956 to 1971).

Initially available as a two-door saloon and tourer (convertible), the range was expanded to include a four-door saloon in 1950, a wood-framed estate car (the Traveller) from October 1953 and panel van and pick-up truck variants from May[5] 1953. It was the first British car to sell over a million units[6] and is considered a classic example of automotive design, as well as typifying "Englishness".
