Designer : Gerald Palmer (1911-1999)
Gerald Palmer worked for Morris from 1937 where he did work on the MG Y-type. In 1942 Palmer was persuaded up to Bradford to create the Javelin for Jowett. In 1949 Morris enticed Palmer back where he created the MG Z-type and its Wolseley equivalents. Based on this success he then created the Riley Pathfinder and its Wolseley sibling and fell out with Leonard Lord over this car so that he went to take up a job with Vauxhall. From 1955 to 1972 Palmer worked on the Vauxhall Victor FB and later the Viva HA, where he tried to water down the transatlantic influences on the designs by David Jones.
