BMC 1600, sold as both Austin and Morris. I can┤t tell the difference here, so I put it to Morris

Morris 1600?...Till 1969 I think it was named Morris Oxford Serie V, then VI ... Is 1600? the name for last productions? I think it has been stopped in the very early 70's... If it is an Austin , then it would be a A55 Cambridge, or A60 Cambridge (after 1962)

The name '1600' is unknown to me. In the UK (where the scene is playing) it is either the Morris Oxford Mk.VI (1961-71) or the Austin A60 Cambridge (1961-69). The earlier Farina styled Morris Oxford Mk.V and Austin A55 Mk.II Cambridge (1959-61 both) had more pointed rear fins. If I am not mistaken only the A60 had this shape of rear fins while those on the Mk.VI were a bit more angular.

I have almost only swedish reference literature for this one, and here they are known as BMC 1600 from 1964 and on with addition Morris Oxford or Austin A60 Cambridge. But as far as I know BMC was used only for the vehicle registration and sales literature but not on the cars. From at least 1966 they appear to have been called Austin or Morris 1600 here, but I think that the names Cambridge and Oxford were still to be found on the cars, but I┤m not sure. They sold in small numbers here after the first years of the sixties.

And after looking more closely at them I agree on that it should be Austin A60, the Morris had different rear fenders.

It's definitely an Austin Cambridge (A60) - the A60 had more rounded fins compared to the Morris Oxford VI, as shown here. Both models were used extensively as mini-cabs (taxis) in the 60s and 70s, often with a ghastly diesel engine, giving a max speed of 69mph!

Another vote for A60 - its definitely the Austin as none of the other BMC farina saloons had the 'double' chrome side strip. On some of the Austins the space between the two side strips was in-filled with a contrasting cream/white paint finish.
