Was this early version known as 1000 in US? If yes, why?

No, IIRC all versions before the 1957+ 1000 were known as Minor in the US too.

Yes, you're right chris40 it was 'Morris Minor' before being re-named 'Morris 1000'. Its something I've been trying to confirm myself for the last nine months....

After finding a 1953 USA magazine advert (via eBay) for a Morris Minor and MG as here...
