Nuffield Organisation
In 1938 Riley was in financial trouble and was taken over by Lord Nuffield and placed into Morris Motors which soon after became the Nuffield Organisation. At this time the Nuffield Organisation consisted of Morris Motors, the MG Car Company and Wolseley Motors, as well as Morris Commercials. Almost as soon as it was formed the Nuffield Organisation had to transform itself for war production and only resumed car production in 1945. Morris was already badge-engineering both MG and Wolseley on Morris engines and other components with shared bodies, and Riley very quickly started using the Morris parts bin although the Riley engines were retained. It was short-lived as in 1952 Leonard Lord agreed a merger with his Austin company and the Nuffield Organisation to form the British Motor Corporation.
