The Model: The Austin 1300 is part of the ADO16 range, a series of small family cars crafted by BMC and later British Leyland. Launched in 1962, this model (along with the 1100), in particular, enjoyed significant popularity, holding the title of Britain’s best-selling car during various periods in the 1960s and early 1970s.

Designed by the acclaimed Alec Issigonis, the ADO16 series, including the Austin 1300, boasts a legacy of over 2.1 million units sold between 1962 and 1974.

Originally marketed under various names, the Austin 1300 and its predecessor, the Austin 1100, were among the most prolific variants of the ADO16 range. Fitted with a 1300cc engine, this model showcased the evolution of Issigonis’ design prowess, incorporating advanced features and innovations. The collaboration with Pininfarina, the Italian styling studio, resulted in a car with comparable interior space to larger counterparts like the Ford Cortina, further solidifying its significance in automotive history.
