About the Austin 1100

The BMC ADO16 (Amalgamated Drawing Office project number 16) is a family of economical small family cars built by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and, later, British Leyland. It was launched in 1962 and for most of the next decade the ADO16 was consistently the UK’s best-selling car.

The ADO16 was marketed under various make and model names including:

  • Austin 1100 and 1300
  • Austin 11/55, America, Apache, de Luxe, Glider and Victoria
  • Innocenti Austin I4 and I4S
  • Innocenti Morris IM3 and IM3S
  • Innocenti I5
  • MG 1100, 1275 and 1300
  • MG Princess and Sports Sedan
  • Morris 1100 and 1300
  • Morris 11/55 and Marina
  • Riley Kestrel and 1300
  • Vanden Plas Princess 1100, Princess 1275 and Princess 1300
  • Wolseley 1100, 1275 and 1300
  • Wolsley 11/55 & Wesp

Although most of the cars were manufactured in England, some were also built in Spain by Authi, in Italy by Innocenti and at the company’s own plant in Belgium. It was the basis for locally adapted similar cars manufactured in Australia and South Africa. Various versions including Austin, Morris, MG, Wolseley and Riley were assembled in New Zealand and Malta from CKD kits from 1963 until the final Austin/Morris versions were discontinued in 1974, a year after the launch of its replacement, the Austin Allegro.

The vehicle was launched as the Morris 1100 on 15 August 1962. The range was expanded to include several rebadged versions, including the twin-carburettor MG 1100 (introduced at the end of September 1962), the Austin 1100 (August 1963), the Vanden Plas Princess 1100 (October 1963) and finally the Wolseley 1100 (1965) and Riley Kestrel (1965). The Morris badged 1100/1300 models were discontinued on the launch of the Morris Marina in 1971, but Austin and Vanden Plas versions remained in production in the UK until June 1974.
