We have these Minor based O-type pick-ups and vans described as both ¼-ton and 6cwt, which give 2 separate clusters of the included versions. I'm also confused because 6cwt = 672 lbs, but ¼-ton = 560 lbs (=5cwt which is a separate 1930s Morris name). Is there a single correct name (or correcter name)? What factors should we use to separate them?

Edit: and for completion we have 2 of the rare Austin-badged versions as just 6cwt (without O-series in title) - none with ¼-ton name. Are these named OK?

As I understand it, the capacity was uprated when the engine was (from 948cc to 1098cc), in 1962. In the absence of dating info I defaulted to the older model. According to Wikipedia, Due to the fact that Morris was now part of BMC, the Minor van was also badge-engineered as the Austin 6cwt.
