Morris Six (MS)
Alec Issigonis designed the Big Morris Minors (Oxford Series MO, and Morris Six Series MS). The Wolseley 6/80 shared its new 2216cc 6-cylinder engine and most of its bodywork with the Morris Six MS. 12,000 Six MS were sold before the model gave way to the new Morris Isis. The sidevalve 2216cc engine was problematic during its lifetime, and following the merger of Austin and Morris into B.M.C. the six cylinder Morrris unit was simply dumped in favour of Austin's new C-series.

Morris Six MS. Morris first offered a Six as the 'Oxford Six' in 1923, later there wewre more Oxford Six and Cowley Six cars, as wewll as a 'Fifteen Six' and from 1928-29 the 'Morris Six'. So the decision to call the new six cylinder version of the Morris Oxford MO as 'Morris Six' was to recall heritage.

Morris Six Police Car. A six cylinder 2215cc overhead cam engine sat behind this grille (and a 4-cylinder 1476cc version went into the Oxford). But this advanced technology had a tendency to burn valves, and these engines got replaced by BMC engines in 1954.

Morris Six Series MS. A more formal grille was given the Oxford with a Six. Problems with the engine's valves did not help the sales of this car.

Morris Six MS. Strongly based on the Oxford Series MO, the Six Series MS had a longer bonnet and different front doors from the Oxford Series MO. In 1954 after just 12,000 sold it was replaced by the Morris Isis, another six cylinder version of a Morris Oxford.
