Some more information from Unique Cars and Parts:
The Marshal was manufactured by the British Motor Corporation (Australia) between 1957 and 1960, being a Morris branded version of the Austin Westminster which was marketed by BMC Australia's Austin dealers as the Austin A95 Westminster. The Marshal was offered as a 4-door sedan and as a 5-door station wagon.
The "Marshal" was the largest car of the Morris range, and replaced the "Isis" in the six-cylinder field. And as you would have expected from the flagship of the Morris range, the Marshal had good handling qualities, held the road nicely, and had ample power to ensure high average speeds on the highway – leastwise when compared to other contemporary cars from the era.
The Marshal was high geared, with the consequence that the engine ran quietly when the car is cruising fast, and gave a very respectable fuel mileage for the size and weight of the car. Its correspondingly high third gear was an excellent ratio. Unfortunately summer driving in Australia was a bit of a chore, the total absence of any ventilation for the front floor evoking considerable criticism at the time. At least BMC did provide quarter-lights in the rear windows (sedans only) to allow some flow through ventilation.
In spite of its high gearing, the Marshal climbed reasonably well in top gear. If third gear was engaged the Marshal would climb difficult mountain passes, while still being able to achieve high speeds when the gradient fell off. The power-weight ratio of the Marshal, with a load of 3cwt, was good at 58 brake horsepower per ton. Overall top gearing provided a road speed of 19.8 mph at 1000 rpm.
