Our UK National Rally 2017 – 1968, Morris 1300 Super Deluxe 4-Door Automatic

We start the week with another look back to last year’s UK National Rally...

...well it’s very exciting! Less than 4-weeks until this year’s National Rally – will you be there?

Richard’s 1968, Morris 1300 Super Deluxe 4-Door Automatic is for us a very special car – this car represents what the ADO16 was all about; forget your MG, Riley, GT, Wolseley and Vanden Plas...

...a dark coloured Morris 1300 with an automatic gearbox and 4-doors was what helped to make the ADO16 so prolific – Richard’s car is finished in Trafalgar Blue with a Blue Grey interior and has recently returned from Chris at Classic Sheetmetal where it has been for sill restoration work.

Sunday, 9th September 2018 – come and join us at the National Tramway Museum, Crich, DE4 5DP

We've added an Apache Brochure today.

It's a charming look at the car from the country that actually saw the end ADO16 production.

Our UK National Rally 2017 - 1972 Mark III Austin 1100 2-Door Deluxe – ex-Police Car

It is just four weeks now until our UK National Rally...

...last year Lee brought his very original 1972 Mark III Austin 1100 2-door Deluxe ex-Police Car – the Austin was originally ordered by the Ministry of Defence for export to the British Embassy in Vienna, Austria but with RHD and a speedometer indicating miles, and started life as a Harvest Gold car with an Olive interior! Also, as can be seen on the original British Leyland Export Department invoice, a number of production extras and accessories were fitted.

From Austria having covered less than 1,000 miles the car returned to the UK to be pressed into service by the Metropolitan Police Force of Greater London (The Met) in November 1975. The body was obviously re-painted whilst inside remained the original moulded vinyl floor covering which due wear Lee has replaced with carpet. The Met sourced and fitted Navy seats but interestingly simply painted the door cards Navy – in places the original Olive can be seen underneath!

The car was little used by various departments in the Met until sometime in 1979 when it was purchased by Inspector Rothbath. It was used by the Rothbath’s au pair to transport the family’s children and pursue other domestic errands until November 2005 when it was sold via eBay to Lee for the grand sum of £249.25, and that included 10 months remaining on the MOT with just 45,000 miles showing.

Ecuador – 1972, Morris 1300

Following yesterday’s Independence Day post, here is another modified ADO16 in Ecuador...

...we are always very keen to promote any modified ADO16 but we suspect this car will divide opinion – what do you think?

If you are in Ecuador please do make contact with us.
