Wolseley 10 Saloon 1939 affectionately known as 'Dougie' with its corresponding and distinctive registration plate. Owned by a real pre-war enthusiast who has lavished a considerable amount of money on this car over the last few years and certainly not for profit. Discovered, we understand, in 2009 with faded 70-year-old paint, tatty upholstery and an engine in need of re-build, but a lovely, sound, straight car project. Fully repainted and fully re-trimmed including door cards, headlining, and carpets (in 2010). Engine entrusted to Peter Edney MG and bored out to 1250cc with new pistons, bearings, timing chain, reground crankshaft, spin-off oil filter conversion, electric fuel pump for easy starting, and electronic ignition. Additional work has seen the wiper motor rewound and a new wiring harness fitted along with a new battery.
Wolseley offered a real quality car back in the day and was very advanced compared to its rivals. One of the first with overhead valves while many of its competitors were still on side valve. 12 volt electrics on this car and hydraulic brakes all round, sliding sunroof and full instrumentation set in a lovely wooden dashboard with polished wood door cappings.
Large history file along with sundry invoices of work carried out. Original owner's manual and Wolseley maintenance book. V5c registration and old green log book.
