OO scale model of an Austin 1300 in early 1970's Metropolitan Police colours.
Manufactured by BMC in the 1960s and 1970s, the 1300GT Mk III front engine, front wheel drive upgrade of the original Morris 1100 was launched at the London Motor Show, where another of its key features included a 1275 cc twin carburettor engine. It was to be 1971 before the Austin/Morris car, went into production.
Our model, registered MOY 905L, dates from 1972-73 and is decorated in the popular pale blue and white Police livery of the period, as used by the Metropolitan Police. The roof beacon incorporates the POLICE sign and POLICE lettering also appears on both front doors. No doubt this nippy little motor would have been very adept round the streets of London in the early 1970s.
