Venezuela Independence Day

Today is Independence Day for the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and we celebrate with a rather strange image...

...we are hopeful of discovering at least one ADO16 in Venezuela, especially as a psychology book is currently published there – Coaching Familiar (Family Coaching) by Montse Urpi and it’s certainly got a Morris 1100 represented on the front cover!

Algeria Independence Day

We celebrate Independence Day of the People's Democratic Republic of Algeria with images of Ahmed’s 1969, Morris 1300...

...the car was imported into Algeria from the UK during the 1970’s – Ahmed contacted our FB Group a couple of years ago having taken ownership and believing the Morris to be the only ADO16 in Algeria; he had most of the parts and was planning to restore the car – we’re patiently waiting for an update!

American Independence Day

We celebrate with the United States of America, their Independence Day with the special ADO16 the American market was offered six months after the launch of the MG 1100 in the UK...

...the MG 1100 Sports Sedan was the only ADO16 variant the US-market would see for a few years; as in the UK a 4-door was available but this sold in lesser numbers than the 2-door option which very few markets would see.

We feature two, 1963 2-door, MG 1100 Sports Sedan examples – one finished in very traditional Tartan Red which had the option of a Dove Grey or Black interior, the other in an eye catching but non standard duotone metallic finish.

We are the only global club for the BMC/British Leyland 1100/1300 – the ADO16; with members, contacts and representatives in well over 50-countries including of course the USA; our membership continues to grow and unbelievably our Facebook Group now has over 2,301 members!

The Shell 4000 Rally – 1965 - 1967

For Canada Day we featured the 1964 edition of the Shell 4000 Rally when an ADO16 finished 27th overall – today we look at some of the other editions...

...in 1965 there was just one ADO16 entry, Robert Watson and Glenn Wood in an Austin 1100 but they did not finish. In, 1966 Robert Watson was again the only ADO16 entrant, this time with Phil Ramage but again they did not finish. 1967 saw just one ADO16 entry, again an Austin 1100 crewed by Trevor Cradduck and Robert Elson but they too did not finish and that was it for the ADO16 – the last Rally took place in 1971, the same year the Trans-Canada Highway was completed.

Our images feature Robert Watson and Phil Ramage in action during the 1966 rally; we’re unaware of ADO16 images from the 1965 and 1967 rallies.

Given the terrain in the last post, its not surprising. ADO16s are so close to the ground it would take a four-wheel drive to get through some of that easily, even todays soft-roaders would struggle. 😃
