About Swallow Morris Cowley Swallow

In 1927, after showing off the Austin Seven Swallow (and a successful sales start), Swallow decided to upgrade the larger car. And already on August 19, 1927, Morris Cowley Swallow made his debut in The Autocar magazine.

Unfortunately, competitors from Morris Garage (MG) also took the chassis and engine from this car as the basis. Due to unprofitability, only a few Cowley Swallow models were produced. However, during this time they managed to get small changes (starting from the first model): pipes on the hood, a divided radiator grille, etc.
