ADO 16 - Austin Glider

ER Classics Desktop 2022

The 'big Mini', the ADO 16 of the British Motor Corporation - where the letters ADO stand for Austin Drawing Office and the number 16 indicates that this is the 16e project was led by, among others, Sir Alec Issigonis -, was known here in the Netherlands as the 'Glider'. Of course that had everything to do with the almost 'floating' capacities of the cart built around the BMC A-series engine. The introduction took place in 1962, which is more than half a century ago. The ADO 16 is considered one of the bestsellers in the British automobile history. The ADO 16 was available as Austin and Morris, but also as MG, Riley, Wolseley and Vanden Plas. With 1100 or 1300 engine. They were built in Great Britain, but also in Belgium, Spain, Italy, Australia and South Africa.
