1913 Wolseley Torpedo Phaeton 6 Cylinder Model M6 24/30 HP For Sale
A well known VSCC dated 1913 Wolseley Torpedo convertible Phaeton 6 Cylinder Model M6 24/30 HP. This Edwardian Colonial model was delivered to Dr Oscar Pelham Edgar (1871-1948) Professor of English literature at Victoria College, University of Toronto and author of many Publications. In 1928 chassis 20331 was sold by J W Pickavant Ltd to Mr Henry Bower of Toronto. in 1959 20331 was Purchased from Bowyer estate by Canadian Wolseley historian Charles G. Neville, who discovered seven Edwardian models. He then proceeded to restore the car, rebuilding the engine. It found its way back England in 2006 as a driving car, but needing cosmetics, to a Mr David Grant of Tattenham Corner Epsom in Surrey, and he picked up the gauntlet and began a full restoration, he had the chassis shot blasted and painted, he had the springs rebuilt and tensioned by specialists "Jones Car Springs Ltd".As you can see he had a new Ash frame made and fitted, this work was carried out by a carpenter called Wayne from the Silverstone area (Thats all we have) there was quite a bit of Nickel plating carried out, and lots more. Unfortunately David Grant became terminally ill and passed away, leaving the car to a dear friend of his, who just stored the car until today. We have almost all of the parts (Certainly all of the major parts) including the hood frame, which still has the original canvas on it, which amazingly is not rotted. The headlights are there, but the rear tail lights (Divers helmet style) are missing, but are available new. A very interesting project for someone, with most of the hardwork done, and when finished, could be worth, as a big Edwardian convertible, over £100,000.
