Austin S200, 400, Morris FG, FM
The Morris FG (and its Austin S200 sibling) went into production in 1960, differing only in badges and grilles. Their unique cab design tapered towards the rear and had rear-hinged doors which could be opened without projecting beyond the vehicle sides. Below the windscreen corner glass panels helped drivers to park in confined spaces. The FG was designed from weights of 30cwt up to 5-tonnes, and replaced models from both FE and LC ranges.
