BMC ADO16 Tyres

The ADO16 (Amalgamated Design Office Project No.16) was initially introduced by the British Motor Corporation as the Morris 1100 Mk1. After its introduction, the BMC 1100/1300 models became a line-up of cars known as "Badge Engineered" vehicles.

Six variants were produced, starting with the entry-level Morris 1100 and Austin 1100 models, followed by the Wolseley 1100 and Riley Kestrel targeting the middle-class market. The range was topped off by the Vanden Plas Princess 1100.

The line-up also included the sporty MG 1100 and two estate versions, the Morris Traveller and Austin Countryman, offering a model for every type of buyer.
