Wolseley 6/90
Riley and Wolseley developed a new model under the Nuffield Organisation that was launched after the merger of Austin and Morris into the British Motor Corporation. Gerald Palmer developed the cars. The Wolseley was launched with more conventional suspension and Austin's 2,639cc 6-cylinder Westminster engine. Launched in 1954, the 6/90 had a troublesome rear suspension that could break and cause the cars to crash, so the Series II in 1957 had leaf springs instead. In 1958 a Series III model was announced with a larger rear window and improved brakes. In 1959 the Wolseley 6/99 Farina model replaced bothe the 6/90 and Pathfinder.
