Footnotes

  • Multi-marque BMC's policy of selling the same basic model under a number of different badges led to its 1100/1300 saloon appearing in Morris, Austin, MG, Wolseley and Riley variants. Launched in Morris and MG forms in 1962, 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 inter-connected 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. It is not surprising that the 1100 enjoying the status of Britain's best-selling car for many years. A 1,275cc-engined '1300' version arrived for 1968, at which time the range was face-lifted, becoming the 'Mk II', the sporting MG variant being available in two-door form only.
    Equipped with Webasto sunroof and recently re-sprayed, this tidy MG 1300 boasts a very good interior and is described by the vendor as in generally fair-to-good condition. The car is offered with MoT to June 2011 and Swansea V5.
