Yes. Strange story - apparently in 1962, 3 local firms started assembly of BMC stuff, with all 3 making Minor vans and pick-ups simultaneously (2 as Morris, the other as Austin and Morris). " In 1962, a total of 6,615 cars and trucks rolled out of 22 authorised plants; three of these possessed BMC licences, and the three produced the same type of vehicle, the Austin 8cwt/Morris O-type van and pickup models ..... the most important one was EMSSA, which started out by assembling the Austin 8cwt pick up, and then the van version in 1963. They then started production of the Austin Mini 1000 in 1964, although some were produced under the Morris marque. After production had been halted during 1966, the plant started up again, and after injections of capital between 1968 and 1969, EMSSA became British Leyland Automotores de Chile, S.A. under direct control of British Leyland. Production centred on the Austin Mini 1000 and the 2 door ADO16 model called MG 1300. The assembly line for this model was not ready until 1970-71, although it had been planned to open it in 1969. The other companies which held licences were: the Compañía Anglo-Chilena, which assembled 216 Morris pick ups and 6 Morris Minor cars in 1962; Industria Anglo-Americana which assembled six Morris pick ups in 1962 before concentrating solely on the production of Chevrolet pick ups and then closing down completely in 1965 ......

This seems to have Morris badge, although hatched grille is odd to UK eyes.
