Footnotes

  • Launched in Morris form in 1962 (the Austin equivalent did not appear until the following year) with better equipped Wolseley and Riley versions following in 1965, the Pininfarina-styled 1100 was the second BMC model to embody Alec Issigonis’ masterpiece of automotive packaging first seen on the Mini. The 1100’s transverse engine/front-wheel-drive layout enabled it to offer interior space approaching that of an A60 Cambridge in a bodyshell little larger than an A40’s, while the comparatively long wheelbase and interconnected Hydrolastic suspension made for a ride quality unapproachable by a conventionally suspended car. Not only that, but the 1100 boasted front disc brakes as standard at a time when almost all its rivals made do with drums. Top speed was 78mph. A 1300 version arrived in 1967, at which time the range was face-lifted, and the model enjoyed the status of Britain’s best-selling car for many years. Production ceased in 1974.
    The vendor advises us that this Wolseley 1100 has been fitted with the later 1,275cc engine and automatic gearbox. Repairs carried out in 2006 included new sills and subframe mounts (see bill on file) and the car is described as in generally good overall condition, with a smooth engine and responsive automatic transmission. Finished in dark blue with matching Ambla vinyl interior, ‘JTK 223G’ is offered with road fund licence/MoT to March 2010 and Swansea V5.
