This car is bodied in an attractive 2+2 touring style by Abbey Coachworks. It is believed to be one of only 5 built by Abbey in this way and certainly one of the prettiest Hornet Specials in our eyes.

The 1.3 litre cross-flow Wolseley 6 cylinder engine with overhead cam was advanced for the pre-war period. Fitted with the twin SU carburettor setup gives a spritely free-revving engine. Not to mention the soundtrack that only a straight six cylinder makes. The 4 speed manual gearbox and hydraulic brakes also give the car a contemporary feel for the period.

The blue body / black wings wear a nice patina and the car has been regularly serviced with a large file for work done including a comprehensive engine rebuild in 2015. Overall this Hornet Special is a very well maintained and great driving example. Absolutely on the button and ready to be enjoyed.
