I would say it's a 1968 ( model year )+ Austin 1300 MkII. From this angle, it can be identified by its grille with four groups of two bars with the black with the Austin arms round badge. The rectangular indicator repeater and the wheels with holes are typical MkII. The Morris version had a different grille ( with three groups of three bars ) and the round badge on the grille was white with a red bull. The 1100 MkII versions had different grilles.

With four groups of two bars in the grill this is the Austin 1300 [ADO16] (1967-71).

This is a second generation ADO16, but 'Mk.2' was only used for the 1100, as the 1300 was all new.

As far as I know, the only version of the Austin/Morris [ADO16] where the MkI, II or III was never applied was the 1300GT. The 1300 version seen here received the MkII designation along with the 1100 when several changes were made for the 1968 model year. This can be read at http://www.austin-rover.co.uk BMC 1100/1300 - The development story.

On the same site the differentiation is made: http://www.austin-rover.co.uk/index.htm?ado16storyf.htm (look for October 1967).
Also the brochures and books about the subject name it 'Austin 1300' and at the same time use 'Austin 1100 Mk.2'.

What can be read is: "The Austin and Morris versions were called MkII ( even though there had never been a previous 1300 version )". I suppose it only confirms what I said: the 1300 was also designated as MkII along with the 1100 from September 1967 ( 1968 model year ).

Yes, I found that paragraph. But we still have the contradiction on the same website.
Additionally in the book from the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust 'Complete Catalogue of Austin Cars since 1945' only the 1100 gets the Mark number.

I think the Mk designation ( in the case of the Austin/Morris 1100 or 1300 ) must be thought about in terms of body changes and not in terms of engine capacities. That's following this train of thoughts that the 1972 model year Austin/Morris 1100 or 1300 MkIII was introduced: the same body with different grilles ( and various interior changes ) for the two available engines.
