There are probably more Morris Minors than other BMC models finished in the colour but Smoke Grey (code BU15) was introduced in 1959 and, at different times, also offered on:

Austin and Morris Mini including Super, Cooper and Countryman/Traveller variants and Mini Van.
Morris and MG 1100.
Morris Oxford Series 1V Series V and series V1
Wolseley 1500, 15/60 and 6/99
MG Magnette 1V and Riley 4/68

Do you reckon it's a genuine original though? I reckon it's a later repro ;)
