MG 1100 – 1962, The First Brochure

Despite the pre-launch uncertainty regarding the MG 1100 the first brochure of 1962 was accurate...

...we show it here, in which can also be seen duo tone paint from the outset.

MG 1100 – An Uncertain Launch

The MG 1100 was launched in October 1962, just 2-months after the Morris 1100 but as we indicated yesterday and as this Press Steel Company advert shows, chrome side trims were a very late addition...

...the first road test was conducted by Motor Sport magazine and was published in their December, 1962 edition...

...although praised for unquestionably offering outstanding value-for-money the car was deemed to be very smooth but lacking in character, despite its squat, purposeful stance...

...lacking in character, really?

MG 1100 Pre-Launch

Following our post yesterday of our club chairman’s father’s MG 1100 we thought we would have a closer look at the model - there were various thoughts at BMC regarding the MG 1100 prior to launch...

...certainly it had already been planned when the Morris 1100 was launched as Issigonis made a very heavy hint about it when interviewed by Motor magazine.

However, as this post shows, side chrome trims were not always part of he plan whilst both a 2-door and a 4-door version were intended for the UK market.

Colour Period Images – 1965, MG 1100 Mark I, 4-Door

Inspired by yesterday’s colour period images of a very rare ADO16, our club chairman has provided these colour period images...

...mainly taken in 1968 they show his father’s 1965 MG 1100 Mark I, 4-Door finished in Connaught Green and photographed in Luton, London and Cornwall. With our chairman as a toddler appearing in many of the images it is clear he took a liking to the ADO16 at a very early age!

...many of you send us period pictures and we are always delighted to share them on our page – we would particularly encourage you to send colour period ADO16 images.

And, can anyone tell us the country of registration?
