ACV made much of the group's 'Proud Inheritance' but by 1952 production of proper Maudslay models had ceased (other than the Merlin IIs for Merryweathers) and instead the factories turned out Mk III AECs. Operators could still purchase Maudslays but since 1951 they were regular AECs with Maudslay badges and Maudslay names such as Maharajah (Mammoth Major 6), Meritor (Mammoth Major 8), Mogul (Monarch & Mandator) etc. Whether any vehicles actually carried these names is unclear. Classified Mk IIIA, chassis numbers comprised the standard AEC model number prefixed with the letter M, in a separate series from AEC, eg M3451.10029.
