I'm having a bit of a garage sale and think this is ADO16 but not 100%, it's got the rubber remote plate, any ideas?

No one got any ideas? Even if it’s to say it’s not Austin 1300, the radiator side mount looks awfully long to fit in an ADO16, what else had A series with a remote box?

The Mk3 (post 1972) ADO16s had the inner cowling deleted, and the radiator moved towards the inner wing compared with earlier cars.
Although i cannot make out the exact dimensions of that lower bracket from the photo, perhaps it is indeed from an early Mk3 car. The gearbox casing should be unpainted or black, not green.

Glacier White is 100% correct, that is a very early Mk3 ADO16 remote gearbox :D
