The Triumph 2000 and 2500 was a popular choice of family saloon in New Zealand.

The Wolseley version of the BMC ADO16 model.
This is a 1972 1300cc automatic.
These vehicles were produced in Morris, Austin, MG, Riley and Vanden Plas versions as well.

The big Wolseley saloon was solid and comfortable.
A 6/110 from 1964.
There was an Austin version of this car, but no Morris, MG or Riley.
There was a luxurious Vanden Plas model, which in later versions had a 4 litre Rolls Royce engine.

The Wolseley 6/80 was based on the 4 cylinder Morris Oxford body shell, but with a changed structure forward of the firewall to house the 6 cylinder ohc engine. There was also a Morris version, simply called "Six" .
