Oxford MO Traveller Estate Car made its appearance in September.
From October all Oxford models has a restyled grille with
two horizontal bars. The Traveller has the same 1476-cc
side-valve engine as the contemporary Oxford Saloon. Other Morris
cars are the Minor, which in late 1952 received an OHV engine
(Series II), and the 2.2-litre Model MS Six.
II had 30 bhp 803cc ohv BMC A series engine and gearbox from 1952,
which many consider a retrograde step.
A new grille arrived on
Oxford in 1952. Interiors are strictly utility. As with the Minor,
a Traveller with structural wooden frame was also available from
In 1952 the Six troublesome vertical valves were replaced
by inclined ones.
