In 1948 a completely new Morris Minor, designed by Sir Alec Issigonis launched the MM Series (1948 to 1953). The new Series II was produced between 1953 and 1956. The Morris Minor 1000 with a 948cc engine lead to improved performance from 1956 up to the last year of van production in 1971.

From 1971, the radically different Morris Marina was the successor.
