Zimbabwe Independence Day

We celebrate Zimbabwe Independence Day with two images that represent now and back then...

...the MG 1100 has clearly seen better days but actually sits in restorable condition whilst what might appear to be front reflectors hint at the car possibly being of South African origin.

Our second image dates back to bygone days when the Morris 1100 was available from a number of dealers in (Southern) Rhodesia.

With special thanks to Iain Harper.

December 1962 – MG 1100 CAR and DRIVER Road Research Report

The first real reference we have to an MG 1100 in the USA dates from December 1962 when the magazine CAR and DRIVER published their Road Research Report...

...the LHD 2-door car is pictured on American licence plates but interestingly, ahead of the official launch there is no reference in the article to the Sports Sedan terminology.

CAR and DRIVER concluded, “the MG 1100 is unique today in offering one of the most versatile suspension systems in existence on a relatively small car with an astoundingly large carrying capacity” – more than 55-years later, nothing has changed!

1962 – MG 1100 Sports Sedan Brochure

At the end of last week we celebrated the anniversary of the official launch of the MG 1100 Sports Sedan in the USA – however the International Automobile Show of April, 1963 was the first USA car show following the UK launch...

...earlier, Car & Driver conducted a road test in December 1962 and Road & Track in January 1963. Both tested 2-door LHD cars with USA number plates, and although neither say anything about a launch date it is possible that models were in show rooms ahead of the official launch...

...indeed this MG 1100 export brochure, from the USA, is dated 1962 and its cover is interesting to compare with the 1963 brochure we featured yesterday.

1963 – MG 1100 Sports Sedan Brochure

The MG 1100 Sports Sedan had a number of brochures issued in the USA – this particular one dates from the launch year of 1963...

...there are a number of versions of this brochure, not just from the USA either and although the internal content remains the same there are variations with the wording on the front...
