Mark III, Austin 1100 Deluxe, 1971 – Glacier White

Those of you particularly in the UK that remember the ADO16 in service during the 1970’s will recall that white, indeed Glacier White cars were rather prolific...

....outside of the UK the Mark III 4-door 1100 edged sales of the 2-door version but in the UK more customers choosing an 1100 went for the 2-door car.

This car finished in Glacier White has a Navy interior – Autumn Leaf was also an option for this body colour. Our featured car does have a Mark II grille and is missing the British Leyland badge from the left hand front wing. Oddly British Leyland did not fit the badge on the right hand wing of the ADO16 although other British Leyland cars did sport the badge on both front wings.

Mark III, Austin 1100 Deluxe, 1971

On Sunday we noted the new dashboard seen in the Mark III ADO16’s but one Austin version continued to offer something different; this Mark III first is a 1971, Austin 1100 Deluxe which continued to feature a central speedo.

The 1100 models were distinguished by their bootlid badge and also a single horizontal bar on the front grille – also of note for the Deluxe model was that on the 2-door cars the rear windows were fixed, non-opening whilst a particularly surprising feature was that the Deluxe also retained the earlier style steering wheel!

This car is finished in Teal Blue with a Limeflower interior
