yes here’s a couple of pages from the brochure you would have been given if you walked into the Showroom in 1959
For other subtle differences like the button on the handbrake lever have a look at thisSo which one of these Speedo's is the Morris?

Bought it as a body for £15 in 1969. It was plum red, and was sitting on four small oil drums in a front garden in Lymm, Cheshire.
Discovered it was a very early one, with a chassis number of 600-and-something. Factory started numbering at 101, so this made it one of the first 500, which were built of a different steel . . . which didn't rust, and never did!
Became my first rebuild special, ending up resprayed black, as an 1100TC and later auto, with P6 front seats and servo brakes. All huge fun, and was our transport for most of the 70s, along with a Rover P5.
