Footnotes

  • Launched in Morris form in 1962 (the Austin equivalent did not appear until the following year) 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. A 1300 version arrived in 1967, at which time the range was face-lifted, enjoying the status of Britain’s best-selling car for many years.
    This car is an example of the Austin 1300GT model, which came with the MG 1300’s more powerful (70bhp) engine and an enhanced level of trim. Offered in need of a certain amount of refurbishment – the engine starts and runs but requires a new exhaust system, and the car would benefit from a re-spray – it comes with original instruction manuals and some service history, and is offered with Swansea V5. No reserve.
