Indonesia Independence Day

Today we celebrate Indonesian Independence Day (Hari Kemerdekaan, Tujuhbelasan) and had thought about posting images of a Morris 1100 – but how do we follow yesterday’s post!

Well there may not be any seat covers but just look at the interior of this car – absolutely gorgeous!

I like that centre console! I remember fitting the likes of that in the day, complete with three extra gauges, brilliant!

Indonesia is a world top ten market and of course RHD. Today SAIC makes commercial vehicles there... love the photos!

1963, Morris 1100

We’re not sure which is the oldest surviving example of a Morris 1100, certainly it’s not easy to find a 1962 car but we doubt any would match what this 1963 model has to offer...

...original dealer fitted plastic seat covers! Ordinarily the thin ones would have been removed by the dealer whilst the new car was being prepared for its first owner and presented with no covers.

Our 1963, Morris 1100 is finished in Dove Grey with a Cherokee Red interior; it features original 1963 new car seat smell contained within the original dealer fitted plastic seat covers! Notice also the cranked gear lever and the position of the windscreen washer bottle, although the original glass bottle has been replaced.

My father bought his Morris on 15th December '62. It never had a glass washer bottle, that was a mini thing and that was retro fitted long before the 1100 was launched. I think that bit to be mistaken.

Amazing car

DVLA data indicates the following number of 1962 UK cars remaining:Morris 1100- 6 (but 570 surviving Morris 1100 cars have no year on the record so that is a minimum) MG 1100- 3 (but 122 surviving MG 1100 cars have no year on the record so that is a minimum) Austin 1100- zero (not launched until 1963)

That is pretty awesome! The quest for the earliest ADO16 rolls on. A remark about the seat covers though. These appear to me to be the quite common after market / dealer-fit clear plastic option seat covers as they appear to be heavier gauge plastic and have sewn seams visible. The original factory-fit covers would likely have disintegrated long ago, while these were designed to stay on the car. It's still an amazing find since they were very likely a dealer-fit when new and have done their job of protecting the upholstery in a remarkable way. Fantastic!

Love the Dove grey/Cherokee red combo. It was the configuration that my grandmother had in her car.

Also has the earlier indicator stalk and arrow repeaters in the instrument cluster; later cars had a green flashing light on the end of the stalk - which was dimmed when the park/headlights were switched on - and the cluster arrows were replaced by two additional warning lights, or ‘idiot lights’ as the motoring press of the day called them.

Lovely car

Superb ! Same colour as the 1964 model my father bought new - your interior photos reminded me how it looked from my usual spot on the rear seat...........

Hello, I’ve got a very early 1963 Morris 1100 in Connaught green!

The Morris 1100 – Coming Off The Secret List

Happy Birthday Morris 1100...

...on the 15th August 1962 the Morris 1100 was launched for the British Motor Corporation to potentially launch its biggest export drive ever and 57-years later ado16.info continues to share that global vision.

Today’s post features a press image for launch day and a pre-launch image with text on the reverse side; indeed this is the earliest LHD image we know of. We also feature the earliest cutaway exhibit car we know of in which Lord Hailsham Lord President of the Council and Minister for Science views the new Morris 1100.

A wonderfully clean design for the early 60s....still looks fresh today.

There was two or three of those parked in almost every street in Buckhurst Hill when I was young

India Independence Day

Today we celebrate Independence Day of India with images of what was another Indian celebration earlier this year...

...we have regularly featured Mankaran’s 1969 Austin 1100 during a most incredible restoration which brought the car back against all odds from a desperate state which last saw the car being used in 1988.

These images show the before and after...
