MG 1100 Overview

The MG 1100 is a classic car which was produced from 1962-74 by the British car manufacturing company BMC (British Motor Corporation) and then the British Leyland company. It was seen as a small family car, yet also being seen as sporty. This car was marketed under several different names, including: Austin, BMC, Morris and Wolseley depending on where the vehicle was sold. When you think of MG, this isn’t the first car that comes to mind but was very popular cars in their time. They were sporty, compact and were cheap enough to buy which made them very popular cars.

MG 1100 History

This car was first produced in 1962, and was launched as the ‘big mini’ being one of the most advanced cars of its time. This was to be the top selling car in the UK for over a decade, as it had all the qualities of a mini, but more practical and spacious, especially for the family car. This was a front wheel drive car that had some initial problems with the transmission, which was soon to be sorted.

The Mk1 (1962-67) was initially only available as a 4-door saloon but an estate version was brought out in 1966. The above mentioned transmission problem, meant a 4-speed automatic gearbox version became available in 1965.

The Mk2 (1967-71) changed how it looked a little, with new grille design, different lights but still remained a very popular car. The Mk3 (1971-74) was the last version of this car to be produced, and was replaced with the MG Maestro in 1971.
