Great Britain

Skonstruowany przez Aleca Issigonisa Minor został zaprezentowany podczas londyńskiego Motor Show. Ma on samonośne nadwozie i niezależne zawieszenie przednich kół.
Oxford ma nadwozie podobne do Minora, ale czterodrzwiowe z dłuższą maską i przednimi błotnikami. Tak jak mniejszy brat ma niezależne zawieszenie na drążkach skrętnych. Zastanawiający jest powrót do silnika dolnozaworowego, podczas gdy wychodzący z produkcji Ten miał jednostkę z zaworami w głowicy.
Six to pierwszy powojenny Morris z silnikiem 6 cylindrowym. Te same karoserie będą miały nowe modele Wolseley'a.
