    I was trying to translate the 350 hatch into 2.5 box, but it does say just 2 box.

    The Farina A40 looks like a real 2 box to me:



    The Chinese's first experience of an Austin would have been the Austin 7 (they visited the production lines at Longbridge), so how many boxes is that, maybe just 1 box?
