BMC’S BIG­GEST FINS ON A HIGHLY SUC­CESS­FUL AND CHAR­AC­TER­FUL SE­LEC­TION OF FAM­ILY SALOONS

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Of The Vauxhall Velox & Cresta Pa -

We’re talk­ing big fins here, so the real can­di­dates for Bri­tish be-finnery are the Austin A55, Mor­ris Ox­ford Se­ries V and Wolse­ley 15/60 mem­bers of this range of five badge-en­gi­neered fam­ily saloons. They were suc­ceeded in 1961 by the Austin A60, Mor­ris Ox­ford Se­ries VI and Wolse­ley 16/60, whose fins were much tamed, but the Mor­ris and Wolse­ley would take Bri­tish fin-ery into the 1970s as they were pro­duced un­til 1971.

There had also been MG and Ri­ley mod­els in the range, the fins of which re­mained con­stant un­til they were axed in 1967 and 1969 re­spec­tively.
