Morris Minor Series II is available as two- or four-door Saloon and two-door Convertible. The arrival of the series II-unchanged externally from the preceding Series MM-heralds switch from the old 918.6-cc side-valve engine to the smaller yet more powerful 803-cc OHV unit (similar to the Austin A30 engine but with an SU carburettor) made possible following the merger between Nuffield and Austin (BMC) in the latter half of 1951. In October the Traveller Estate Car made its debut.
Morris Oxford Series MO is available in Saloon and Estate Car (Traveller) variants. The latter has an ash-framed light alloy panelled body with sliding rear windows and vertically-hinged double back doors. Both the estate and saloon are fitted with a new chromium-plated radiator grille of different design to the zinc-alloy type used on previous Oxfords.
The Six de luxe attempted to broaden the car's appeal.
Morris Eight a 5-cwt Van variant, Series Z was continued until May 1953.
