Anyone remember the ADO16?

Post by bogbasic » 08 Oct 2020 12:55 am

Well that's the generic BL prototype number for the Austin 1100 series. I keep seeing this upmarket version which is a Wolseley.

Apparently, the rarest is the Riley Kestrel which, like the Wolseley, was twin carb.
1988 340 1.4 GL, 218k, 5 door (Grey Bess). Gone to CBA.
1991 340 1.7 GL, 64k, 5 door, petrol blue (Deep Blue).
1988 360 2.0 GLE, 140k, 5 door, ocean blue metallic (Blue Bess).
1989 340 1.7 GL, 108k, 3 door (Red Ness).
