Very interesting. I liked the 1100/ 1300s myself as a young family man in the seventies, and I really liked the estate. That was until I overloaded it with three passengers in the back plus luggage. The back went down and the front end came up so the steering became very light, and then, on a hill near Weatherby things got so bad that my passengers had to get out and walk. We managed to carry the luggage up in the car, but that was the reason why they never made a commercial model of the 1100. The suspension wouldn't take the weight. Instead, they up rated the Minor van from 6 cwt. to 8 cwt. by adding an extra leaf to the rear springs, and because Austin had ceased production of the A 35 by then, the Minor van was also available with an Austin badge on the front.
