In 2017 ado16.info used crowd funding to procure an ADO16 body shell and other panels. This has been used by Classic Sheetmetal Limited of Birmingham, UK with whom a very close working relationship has been established. Bespoke repair sections are now being produced and shipped to owners around the world.

One particular ADO16 body configuration was never sold in the UK but various overseas markets did receive it – the 2-door version of the Mark I saloon, available in Austin, Morris and MG guise.

ado16.info has purchased an all important entire NOS rear wing section for this model. This will enable Classic Sheetmetal to produce left or right hand side sections as might be required for repair or restoration by owners of such models.

Orders for all ADO16 panels can be placed by contacting Chris at Classic Sheetmetal:

Exclusive to paid-up members of the ado16.info club is a very generous 10 per cent discount.

Michael's interest in cars started from an early age, when he would spend time in his Dad's garage observing many a job being undertaken. Naturally as Michael grew up, cars were firmly a part of his DNA, and as such the interest has gone from strength to strength. Having always had a keen interest in all things British, it probably wouldn't surprise you to know that his portfolio of cars have always been British made.
