Introduced by the 'British Motor Corporation' (BMC) in 1962, and known officially as the AD016, variants of the ADO16 were available under the Austin, MG, Morris, Riley Vanden Plas and Wolseley brands. The Issigonis designed range proved very popular and for most of its production life (between 1963 and 1971) was Britain's best-selling car. Various versions were available including the Saloon (in two or four-door specifications), Countryman, and sportier GT model. Made famous in popular culture by 'Basil Fawlty' giving a Red Traveller version "a damn good thrashing" in an episode of Fawlty Towers, ADO16’s are an ever-popular easy to own British classic.

In the '60s, if you wanted a 'larger' version of the Mini with a pleasant ride but with similar familiar mechanicals, this Austin would fit the bill, especially so, as this sportier engined 1300cc example wears its age extremely well and is adorned with many 'in period' accessories that will certainly make this AD016 a bit special. Accessories include a fabulous triple rally gauge console with tachometer, bumper overriders, front Lucas spotlights and reverse lights, a Kingsbury radiator muff, and a period AA badge. Previously subject to a self-evident restoration, this is a smart example ready to be enjoyed. It's offered with a collection of invoices and the V5C.
