History of the Wolseley 1100/1300
Built between 1962-1974 the Wolseley 1100 and Wolseley 1300 were some of the variants of the BMC ADO16 family of cars. Following the success of the Mini, the designer Alec Issigonis intended to design a larger car with more advanced features and innovations. It was front-wheel drive with single-piston swinging calliper disc brakes on the front and copied the hydrolastic suspension of the 2CV but with added roll stiffness.
