ado16.info Get Together – 1970, Morris 1300 Mark II

Although as we noted yesterday there were no Austin versions of the ADO16 at the recent ado16.info club get together at the 2020, BMC & Leyland Show there was no shortage bearing the Morris badge...

...our allocated parking spaces were full which meant Bob had to park elsewhere but that didn’t prevent him from spending time with us and indeed making sure one of our photographers spent time with his car; a 1970 Mark II, Morris 1300, first registered in May of that year thereby making it the oldest ADO16 Morris at the show.

Bob’s car certainly doesn’t have an original paint combination but we think it looks fabulous in orange with its black painted roof, whilst the coachline simply adds a touch of class!

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 over 2,350 members; so, we’re on the lookout for proactive club helpers!

no Austins even though they were 70% of the production run and lasted until the end, with Riley at the other end of the scale 1%.

That paint combo looks almost GT like.

looking good

ado16.info Get Together – 1971, Vanden Plas Princess 1300

You may recall that the recent ado16.info club get together at the 2020, BMC & Leyland Show coincided with the anniversary of the launch of the Austin 1100...

...strange it was then that whilst every other ADO16 marque was represented at the show the Austin was absent – so, the next best thing is a Vanden Plas and Peter was there on our club stand with his, a 1971, Vanden Plas Princess 1300.

Peter has had the car since 2008 and although it had previously been the subject of an extensive restoration Peter is of the view that it would benefit from another. Still, the car looks great finished in Midnight Blue with its Navy interior and Peter also has some fantastic history with the car; the original order form and other associated paperwork and folders!

Weekly Model Series – Norev – Austin 1100

We skipped our weekly model series last week but we’re back again in France continuing with Norev; the company founded by the Véron brothers – Norev being the family name spelt backwards...

...Norev models were known for their bright body colours and often models were made available in a variety of colours; they also often featured opening body parts – launched soon after the Morris 1100 was Model Number 89, the Austin 1100 finished in 1/43rd scale.

Around 1980, Norev changed ownership and has since been owned by a number of other companies; along the way some of the older models have been remanufactured including it is thought around 1997, the Austin 1100 – our first image of the blue Austin 1100 is thought to be a 1997 version.

This week’s cover image is rather unusual – there’s no shortage of Australian Morris 1100 advertising images but we see far fewer black and white official press images – anyone recognise the location?

The rear 1/4glass trim is missing or did Aussi mk1 1100 not have them?
