Isis II jest modernizacją modelu wprowadzonego w ubiegłym roku z nową maską i tylnymi lampami. Podobną kurację odmładzającą przeszły Cowley i Oxford.
Cowley jest próbą pogodzenia niskiej ceny z mocnym, półtoralitrowym silnikiem. Dostępny jest z czterobiegową lub półautomatyczną skrzynią biegów.

Morris Minor 1000 is a replacement for the 1948-56 Minor. This more powerful version features a 948-cc 37-bhp engine, close-ratio gearbox with sports type remote-control change, and a higher rear axle ratio. The appearance is changed by the introduction of a large one-piece curved windscreen and matching rear window, and the interior improved by the fitting of lidded facia glove boxes and a deeply dished steering wheel.

Saloon  

 

Morris Cowley 1500 Saloon is uprated by the adoption of the 1489-cc 55-bhp B-Series Oxford engine. It is distinguished from the preceding 1200 version by restyled bonnet and rear wings, redesigned facia and a dished steering wheel, but remains slightly less well equipped and thus cheaper than the Oxford, which is similar in overall dimensions.
