In 1962, a quite revolutionary new saloon was launched by BMC. With the codename ADO16 this new car was hot from the drawing boards of Alec Issigonis, who set out to design a larger and more sophisticated car which incorporated more advanced features and innovations, and the world famous Italian design house Pininfarina. Offered in many guises by Innocenti, Morris, Riley, Wolseley, Vanden Plas and Austin, the ADO16 was truly universal in its appeal. In line with BMC's policy at the time, Austin badged versions of the ADO16 were built at Longbridge, whilst Morris and MG versions were assembled at Cowley.

 This 1970 Morris 1100 Mk. II Four-Door Saloon presents well in Teal Blue with black upholstery. A very well cared for Morris 1100 that is an ideal starter classic. Charming in both presentation and performance the car is described by the vendor as a delight to drive. The paintwork is still very bright and the upholstery is unmarked and in great order. The navy carpets are also very good with no signs of wear or fading. It has had an aftermarket amp gauge fitted as well as a dual oil pressure / temperature gauge which are both very useful. Underneath the car is very solid and has been well maintained over the years. This attractive car benefitted from an earlier restoration and recent service works. We are also informed that this car has been used by Marvel films in the film ‘Loki’. The car is accompanied by a history folder containing various bills, invoices and old MoT’s dating back many years, as well as the original driver's handbook. This 1100 is a genuine car that must be seen to be truly appreciated.
