Belgium – Multi-Marque Advertising

Particularly in export markets it wasn’t uncommon to see both Austin and Morris versions of the ADO16 advertised together but to add in the Wolseley 1300 was unusual whilst sharing company with the upmarket models of Jaguar – Rover – Triumph was almost unheard of...

...the instances when it did occur were usually within a corporate brochure – this 1968, Belgium corporate flyer celebrates the formation of BLMC, British Leyland Motor Corporation and it’s certainly wonderful to see the ADO16 amongst such distinguished company!

The flyer was produced on flimsy paper whilst the Jaguar XJ6 dates it as post September, 1968. Indeed it is thought it was published to be handed out at the Brussels motor show of January, 1969 – the text reads,

"BLMC... Four letters. An adventure... An adventure led by the modern Kiplings who are today's British businessmen... Once there were several rival companies. They were called Austin, Jaguar, Leyland, Morris, Rover, MG, Standard Motor, Triumph... Today they are united under the British Leyland banner..."

With special thanks to Phillippe Salomon and to British Leyland Chronicles.

Belgium – MG 1100 & 1300

Advertising material from Belgium would suggest that all versions of the ADO16 MG were sold including the 2-door version of the MG 1100...

...however despite the MG being the choice for Tintin as we featured on Sunday surviving examples have proven to be rather elusive – we are aware of a 4-door MG 1100; are there other examples in Belgium?

Belgium – 1969.Morris 1100 2- Door Deluxe

There’s a certain charm to the base model of any car model...

... with a period aftermarket upgraded dashboard this 1969. Morris 1100 2-door Deluxe looks very smart – the ADO16 was assembled in Belgium at the Seneffe plant nonetheless surviving examples seem to be less common in Belgium than most other European countries.
