1939 Wolseley 12/48 Saloon

SOLD £5,656

Nicely patinated example; re-cored radiator and new king pins; comes with history; running and driving

This fine old Wolseley came into the hands of its current owner in 2018. First registered in March 1940, it is thought to have been built in late 1939 and comes with a buff logbook dating back to the mid-'60s when it was resident in Buckinghamshire.

The vendor located the car in Hastings and has undertaken some recommissioning including a recored radiator (£450) and new King Pins - a big job which required the axle eyes to be shrunk back to size. There are further bills on file and a typed listing of works carried out in 1963/4 which is interesting. There are also a number of old MOTs, including one dated 1966.

The car appears to be extrememly sound. The paintwork is average, the worst part being the top of the bonnet which has a paint reaction, but looks fine from a few feet away. The interior is lovely and original and the sunroof functions as it should. Altogether it looks good and its new owner is not going to frightened to leave it parked in the High Street.

It has been used for local trips and is only on offer due to lack of storage. We have driven the car while it has been onsite and it goes well, although the brakes needed a few pumps to get working so they will need some attention before driving on the road.
