Chile Independence Day

Chile Independence Day, the Fiestas Patrias of Chile is today and of course we celebrate with a rather unique ADO16 variant – the Chilean manufactured fibreglass MG 1300...

...earlier this month Osvaldo shared with us a couple of images of his ADO16 which he decided to give a more sporty look – 1.25” spacers have certainly done that!

Currently on Osvaldo’s list are tyres, he’s looking at fitting some R13 – 195/50

Now in well over 60 countries, we are the only global club for the ADO16, the BMC/British Leyland 1100/1300 – Our membership continues to grow and unbelievably our Facebook Group now has approaching 2,350 members; so, we’re on the lookout for proactive club helpers!

Mexico Independence Day

We realise we’re a day late but still, today’s post celebrates Independence Day of the United Mexican States (Día de la Independencia)...

...we’re gradually discovering that there are examples of the ADO16 in Mexico and here’s a 1964, MG 1100 which was recently up for sale in the trendy Cuauhtémoc borough of Mexico City just west of the city's historic centre – and at the equivalent of a little over £10k just goes to illustrate the worth placed globally on the ADO16 but then that’s why we exist!

Interesting wheels - can’t work out what these are from. I think the handbrake needs some adjusting 🤪

ado16.info Get Together – 1969, Riley 1300 Mark II

So busy was the recent 2020, BMC & Leyland Show that Tony couldn’t get his ADO16 close to the ado16.info stand but we got to him...

...if you’ve been following our posts for the past few days then you’ll notice that this is the fourth Riley present at the show! Tony’s car is a 1969, Riley 1300 Mark II – it’s a very original looking car complete with its 11-stud, 9.75:1 compression cylinder head and larger bore side exit exhaust.

You’ll rarely see a brown car on the roads these days but it was once a very popular choice, Tony’s Riley is finished in Fawn Brown with a Mushroom interior.

Beautiful than my 4 door Classic MG 1100

ado16.info Get Together – 1966, Riley Kestrel 1100

Display parking space was at a premium at the recent 2020, BMC & Leyland Show but undeterred William managed to get his 1966, Riley Kestrel 1100 parked up just 3-cars away from our 8-car stand...

...William actually came to the show thinking he would soon be selling his lovely Riley and asked us to give it a once over and put a value on it – so we did!

Our trump card was pointing out to William that every time he drives his Riley it puts a huge smile on his face – priceless! We think we’ve been pretty successful in persuading him to not sell the car but rather enjoy for many years to come the splendid paint job he’s had done and to rectify a small number of blemishes under the bonnet.

William’s 1966, Riley Kestrel 1100 is finished in Black with a Green interior – if you’re able to help with a couple of door bins William would be highly appreciative but otherwise the interior is close to perfection.

This week’s cover image is so unusual we thought it well worth the sacrifice in picture quality – period colour press images are not easy to come by, even harder to find are those of a left hand drive estate; this is a Mark II, Austin 1300 Countryman finished in Cumulus Grey which would have had a Peony Red interior.

I,m still looking for side trims for mine if anyone has them tucked away.
