Originally the Lancashire Steam Motor Company based in Leyland, England, they built their first petrol engine wagon in 1905. The company has had several names since, including the British Leyland Motor Corporation, British Motor Holdings and British Leyland, before settling on the Rover Group in 1986. Over the course of their history, brands such as Daimler, Land Rover, Austin, Morris, MG, Triumph and Jaguar have all been controlled by the Rover Group. In the 1960’s the Leyland Motor Corporation of Australia was formed, and produced the Austin Lancer, Morris Major, Austin Freeway, Wolseley 24/80 and Morris 1100. The Morris 850 was imported in 1965 and modified to Australian standards, and renamed the Morris Mini Deluxe. However, Leyland withdrew from Australia in 1974.
