The Hornet was the first new model offered by Wolseley following the company's takeover by Sir William Morris in 1927. The subsequent Hornet Specials featured an underslung rear axle and were powered by a twin carburettor, high-compression, crossflow head version of Wolseley's 1271cc OHC engine. Some 2,300 such bare rolling chassis were supplied for clothing by Avon, Abbey, Swallow, Cunard, and London Wolseley dealer Eustace Watkins.
Finished in Burgundy over Black with Black leather upholstery, this particular example wears Abbey coachwork and is variously described by the vendor as being in 'good' (interior trim), 'very good' (bodywork, engine, gearbox, electrical equipment) or 'excellent' (paintwork) condition. An older restoration that has been resident on Jersey for the last few years, the Wolseley is offered for sale with buff logbook, handbook, restoration details and collection of invoices. A welcome alternative to the equivalent MGs and Singers.
