MG M Mini 1963 by Autocult

Happy Birthday  
In Great Britain the name Austin stood for a solid construction and reliable utility vehicles. But beginning in 1950 the future of the British manufacturer became difficult and finally in 1952 the press department announced that Austin will merge with its formerly biggest competitor Morris Motor Company. The new company name of the company merger was British Motor Corporation, or short BMC. Due to the corporation BMC grabbed a market share of almost 40% of the British automotive market. Beside Morris and MG also the cars of the brands Austin-Healey, Vanden Plas, Wolseley and Riley were part of the car range.   To at least defend its market share BMC established a development department at the former main plant of Austin in Longbridge. Under the abbreviation ADO (Austin Development Office), the vehicles for the whole concern were developed and extensively tested. Among these developments, ADO 15, which advanced to the position of the most successful small car of BMC, was to be found … the Mini. On 18 August 1959 the first cars rolled off the line in Birmingham and the success story took its course. While the production started and the demand increased steadily, the engineers continued their work at the drawing boards in Longbridge and sketched, designed and developed further improvements. The ADO numerical order was tireless continued. One of these developments was a mixture of a Mini that was fitted with a transmission of John Cooper and significantly more valuable interior features than the standard version. Also the bodywork of the prototype differed from the standard Mini. Those who took a closer look at the car were able to recognize that the 1963 prototype with the MG badge on its body was a mixture of a Mini and a Riley Elf.   Even if the prototype did not made it into series production, it represents an important part of the development history of the car and also deserves the congratulations to the 60-year Mini-anniversary in August 2019 … Happy Birthday!
