Morris Marina, Ital
ADO28 was the project to replace the BMC 'Austin Farinas' with a conventionally engineered front engine rear wheel drive mid size saloon. A 1275cc A-series engine powered the 1300, and a 1798cc B-series was given to the 1800, and there was also a twin carb 1800 TC version. Launched in spring 1971 the car was named Morris Marina and was available as a 2-door 'Coupe' and a 4-door saloon, styled by Roy Haynes (Cortina MkII designer). Underneath the engineering re-used Morris Minor technology and the whole package was out of date. In 1973 a 5-door estate car was offered. For 1978 the Marina was given the new O-series 1698cc engine and new bumpers were given to update the looks. But the biggest change came with the arrival of the Morris Ital in 1980, designed not by Giorgetto Giugiaro as many thought, but by Harris Mann with engineering help from ItalDesign. The Austin Montego took over from the Morris Ital in 1984.
