  Morris Oxford  

The Morris Oxford name was in use from 1913 to 1971, applied to a series of cars produced in Oxford initially by WR Morris, later BMC and eventually British Leyland. The Vanguards model is from the end of the story being the Farina bodied MkVI Oxford.

In 1959 the Oxford was merged into the mid-sized Pininfarina-designed BMC Farina range along with a number of other badge engineered models, including the 1958 Wolseley 15/60 and 1959 Riley 4/68, Austin A55 Cambridge Mark II, and MG Magnette Mark III.

All the Farina cars were updated in October 1961 with a new 1.6-litre version of the B-Series engine, longer wheelbase and a new revised look. The tail fins had been trimmed and there were still detail changes between the marques. The Morris retained the Series V dash, while the Austin had an all-new fake woodgrain design. The Morris Oxford Traveller (estate) Series V was replaced by a Series VI, although little changed apart from the front grille.

The Oxford VI remained in production until 1971 with 208,823 produced. The Oxford range was to have been replaced by the 1967 Morris 1800, but in the event both were built until Oxford VI production ended in 1971 because, in terms both of pricing and of interior space, the 1800 fell into the market segment of a larger car and did not compete with the Oxford.
