1959-1971 MORRIS Oxford V/VI specifications Classic and Performance Car

Spread right across the BMC range, Morris was just one of five badges to be found on this angular Pininfarina-styled body. The Morris actually differed little from its Austin brother, but was built in another factory. Rear lights are the main visual change, though inside there was a unique dashboard and bench rather than individual front seats. Series VI arrived after just two-and-a-half years with larger engine and wider track for better handling. Rear fins are reduced in height. Usefully spacious estate version was killed off early in 1969.
