Guess that red n black morris convertible is a lady driven, used everyday to drop her kids to school. Too bad it broke down. My condolences, to any V & C that breaks down.

I think you are mentioning about the MORRIS OXFORD meters.
First of all ,let me inform you all ambassadors from late59 onwards had OHV engines.And mark2 never came with sidevalve so there is no nomenclature/badging like mK2 OHV.
These meters do have a resemblance to the LANDMASTER meters ,not MK2
also MK2 meters from 1965 were not smiths but yenkay ..
