1951 WOLSELEY 4/50.DELIGHTFUL CONDITION For Sale

The British Motor Corporation or BMC, as it were better known, were the innovators of so called badge engineering. However William Morris of Morris Motors were practicing the art since before the war, spinning both MGs and Wolseleys from the more mundane Morris models. But it was after the the 2nd World War that the Nuffield Organisation, the Morris Parent Company, began to introduce greater levels of rationalisation and Wolseley was one of the first marques that ended up moving far closer to the Morris than it been in previous years. The 1948 4/50, was to all intents and purposes a Morris Oxford MO wearing traditional Wolseley identity tags. The more stately Wolseley grille was grafted on the front of the Issigonis's curvaceous design, with interior fitments upgraded to full wood and leather specification to suit the aspiring middle class sensibilities. The Wolseley also replaced the Morris side valve engine and had its own far more advanced 51 bhp 1476cc overhead cam four cylinder engine.

The quite delightful example we offer here has a lovely story to tell. The Wolseley was built between th 27th of February and the 6th of March 1951 and dispatched to T.H.Nice and Co of Cambridge on the 7th of March the same year. The car was then registered to a Mr. Lunniss of Newmarket on the 9th of March 1951. The car then had just 3 owners until 1998. The present mileage reading is 69,000 miles, it would be nice to think that reading was correct but apart from MOTs that go back to 2003 we have no other evidence to back this up, therefore it would be wise to assume that it is not the mileage covered by the car from new but let your eyes be the judge. The car drives extremely well and starts on the button. I would say the car has been restored in past but certainly the car presents very well with good paintwork and chrome. The comes with an extensive history file which includes a British Motor Heritage Certificate, original buff log book, older MOTs, tax discs and what looks like it's original drivers hand book.

We can only find one other example on the market nationwide making it a very rare example indeed. An absolute must for a Wolseley collector.

Part exchange welcome, funds either way.
