1958 WOLSELEY 15/50 - RARE, JUST GORGEOUS INSIDE & OUT! For Sale

Here we have a truly delightful Wolseley 15/50, the model which replaced the ageing 4/44 in 1956. This is an early example being a 1956 itself, and she is in super order. The 15/50 was everything Wolseley was about. Refined, sleek, great looks, luxury fittings and so on. But this time around, stepping in as a replacement for the 4/44 with its 1250cc engine and column change, came a car with a 1500cc unit and a floor change. So, despite the fact that its sister car the MG Magnette - with all its sporting pretensions - came with twin carbs, the Wolseley had the same under the bonnet less one carb! The Magnette was the sporty one. You know, the car that attracted the driver with flat cap, tweed jacket, string-backed driving gloves and probably a pipe. The Wolseley 15/50 was the refined one. More bank manager than bank robber; more solicitor than spiv! They only made 12,000 of these fine cars (compared to 30,000 4/44s) and they are rarely offered for sale in today's classic marketplace. This is a June, 1958 model and so one of the later ones. Without a shadow of a doubt, it is in absolutely tip-top condition. It has covered just 56,000 miles from new (it was off the road for 20 years until 1998) and comes with a detailed history. First owner 21 years, second owner 21 years, third owner 13 years, fourth owner 4 years and the gentleman from whom I acquired it, also 4 years. In totally supreme condition both body and structure-wise, her contrasting deep red interior is also in super order as is all the typical Wolseley woodwork. On the road, she is amazing. I took her out in yesterday's sunshine and it felt like I was driving a new - or at least relatively new - car. She feels tight and responsive with no play, sloppiness, rattling, rolling or growling. And of course she has no difficulty in coping with today's road conditions as the tried and tested BMC 1500cc pulls superbly. She has to be one of the very best available and, as you will probably be aware, it's a rare model with not many built. You hardly see any for sale, let alone one in this kind of condition. Beautiful I would say. Quite beautiful. She is not a new car, nor is she a three-year-old used car. She is a piece of antique motoring history and, as such will have quirks and maybe even the odd fault. Anyway, she is what she is. These old gems - in this case 62-years-old - are sold as seen. Should you buy without viewing, then she is sold on the basis of the advertisement you have read the photos, or extra photos, you have seen as well with the assistance of any answers to questions you have received from me. Treat these classics with the respect they deserve and make sure they have love, time and effort lavished on them. Even the very best need permanent on going care. Practically all will have undergone a degree of restoration work or improvement at some stage. If it's a three-year-old car dating from the 1950s that you are after, then you are out of luck. Short of acquiring a Tardis that is. Anyway, thanks for reading. I am here to answer any questions you may have and, remember, that I also provide a delivery service. Martin (07595-020282)
