The Austin and Morris cars produced by British Motor Corporation (later Leyland Motor Corporation or Leykor) carried coats of arms.

The Morrises carried the municipal arms of Oxford, showing a red ox above wavy barrulets representing water. These, like the VW badges, also became stylised. They most likely go back to the early models produced by Lord Nuffield's factories.

austin morris 1100 poster

Austin/Morris 1100 poster. The Morris 1100 Mk 1 was produced from August 1962 to June 1974. Designed by Sir Alec Issigonis and following his success with the Mini, Issigonis set out to design a more sophisticated car which incorporated even more advanced features and innovations.

In common with the Mini, the 1100 utilised the BMC A-Series engine, mounted transversely to employ front wheel drive. With styling by Pininfarina and featuring front disc brakes plus an innovative suspension system called "Hydrolastic"", the 1100 was consistently the UK's best-selling car throughout the 1960s.

I bought 2 1100's Austin red and Morris cream. Both cheap to run plenty room better than the Mini ,but sub frame was a let down in the North of England damp, wet snow, rain, sand salt. Never stood a chance. For a first car they were good value for money. 2 quid and 5 quid in 1969.
