BMC ADO16

ER Classics Desktop 2022

De badge engineered BMC ADO16 models, known here as the 'Glider', were available as Austin, Morris, Riley, Wolseley, MG and even Vanden Plas. The trolley was a success from Day 1 and remained in production for 16 for years. In the 16 year, the front and the grille were changed no less than thirty-five times. That number includes the 'Gliders' that were also built overseas ... Would BMC and BL slowly slip into the pit as a result? The letters ADO stood for Austin Drawing Office. No less than 2.159.386 was sold. How many would be left?

Photo: The badge engineered ADO 16 models were called 'Glider' in our country; in Denmark they came - far before the world could get to know it - as Morris Marina on the market, the MG version was called MG Sports Sedan ... The latter also in the United States. It is very special that they were designed from 1962 as 2 doors; in Great Britain they had to wait until 1968 ... The Austin and Morris version was also available as a Countryman
