As long as we don't see the front of the two-coloured car, it can equally be a Morris 1100 or an Austin, or Wolseley, or Vanden Plas, or Riley, either way it's badge-engineered BMC 1100.

All of them were avaiable in the two-tone paint? If not possible to say, then let's list it under the name of the most common one in those times (I hope that one of them was more popular than the others :D ).

The two-tone paint is more consistent with MG versions, IIRC.

Although BMC versions could have changed year by year, Austin and Morris I think rarely used it. If they did it was only the roof and/or the C pillars that were different I believe. Wolseley had the same colour roof and lower sides, the C pillars and upper sides being the second colour 'flash' with sloped front.

For me another vote for a MG 1100 Mk.I I think.

Do the wheels look to be missing the hub-caps?

Yes, the hubcaps are missing. I'm not convinced that this was a factory two-tone scheme for the MG; I don't remember the lighter colour ever being on top. If, as I suspect, this is aftermarket, it doesn't have to be an MG.

The missing hub-caps were starting to worry me. It appears to me that the wheels could be re-sprayed silver rather than the normal (I think) neutral grey or cream BMC steel wheels.
The high contrast between the light and dark areas does not look right.
Yes, it could be an Austin or Morris that's had a partial respray on the lower surfaces by someone wanting to 'improve' their standard 1100 saloon.
