A deformed single-particle model which includes the Coriolis coupling term is used to calculate the properties of 55Mn and 57Fe. The available experimental data are reviewed and compared with the calculated results. Good agreement is obtained for the energy levels, electromagnetic properties and stripping spectroscopic factors. An extension of the model to doubly odd nuclei, with inclusion of an n-p residual interaction, also produced good agreement with experimental quantities for 56Mn. Consideration of these results in comparison with shell-model calculations leads to arguments that these nuclei may be statically deformed.
