The 1100 Companion

£9.99

Product description

"This book tells the story of the 'Eleven-hundred', which in its several forms has proved to be the one of the most successful small cars ever produced.

No matter whether you are interested in the Austin, Morris, MG, Wolseley or Vanden Plas Princess 1100, or the Riley Kestrel, the generic type is 'ADO 16', these initials standing for Amalgamated Design Office, that comprehensive central design section of the vast British Motor Corporation. ADO 16, the 1100 version, follows the basic ADO 15 'Mini' design philosophy, which was the brain-child of the British Motor Corporation's technical directory Alec Issigonis, C.B.E.

For a rather different motoring public, the Mini philosophy was expanded and improved and the Morris 1100 was announced in August, 1962. Motoring scribes at the time said cautiously: 'It enjoys the perilous inheritance of an honoured name.' The Austin 1100 followed. The MG 1100 was introduced in October, 1962, as an addition to the 'Safety Fast' range of MG saloons and sports cars. It was soon obvious that the unique architecture of ADO 15 had been followed with valuable developments and refinements for ADO 16, plus many special features which we will examine in the following pages of this book."

Book pages are in very good condition. Page edges are somewhat discoloured.
Hardback cover has been neatly covered in clear plastic for protection and is in very good condition.
