Good article on the MG1100.  The only correction I would make is that in the USA both the two door and four door MG1100 were sold.  Not sure what the split was.   In 1967 there was a change in the product range, the MG1100 for a short period received the 1275cc engine with twin carbs and there was a very basic Austin 1100 with the 1098cc engine and the AP 4 speed automatic was an option. This was only for less than one model year and in 1968 the Austin America was launched which was a single carb 1275cc engine, new four speed full syncho gearbox or optional AP automatic. All of these cars were two door versions. 

Austin America, owned since 1971.
