Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Churchill’s Morris Oxford features in Errol Auction on March 9

If you are near Errol Airfield on Saturday, March 9, 2013, it might be interesting to drop in and see how much a Morris Oxford which was owned by Winston Churchill goes for. It was registered in his name in May 1964 and was the last private car he owned. Churchill had been MP for Dundee from 1908 to 1922, and died in 1965.

The car was in a collection, and the light coloured car, which has covered only 7,802 miles (as declared by the auctioneers), still has the registration number it carried when Churchill owned it, 6000 KP. It comes with the original log book, signed by Churchill.

There’s no estimate on the lot, but if you missed the sale of Churchill’s Land Rover a few months ago, it went for £129,000 last year.

You can find out more details about the auction on the official site:

Current Auctions| Perth | Scotland | UK | Morris Leslie Group

This link shows (at the time of writing) the details of the car including a number of photogrpahs:
