The Wolseley Hornet was produced between 1961 and 1969, initially with the 848cc “A” series engine. In 1963 the MK2 Hornet arrived, and this was fitted with the 998cc engine borrowed from the Cooper but in a lower state of tune.

This car is a 1963 Wolseley Hornet in its original colour scheme of Yukon Grey and Old English White. I am offering it here as a straightforward project but most of the hard work is done. There are just 10 Hornets left (on the road or SORN) from ’61 to ’63 so this is one of the oldest in existence. It spent all of its life in the Somerset area, carries its original transferable registration number and the V5 shows previous owners – “none” although the “buff” logbook indicates a couple of keeper changes in the 60’s. In 2001 it was restored but unused since. At some time the original engine and gearbox has been replaced with a later unit although it wouldn’t take too much work to alter the appearance back to original. The body is straight and although there are various imperfections in the paint, there is no rot. The underside is solid and there are many new parts.

We have carried out some re-furbishment, fitted various new parts; rear brake hoses, points, plugs, starter motor, solenoid, brake light switch and carried out various other minor jobs including draining the fuel tank and MOT’d it for 12 months. It now runs well – the engine, gearbox clutch and brakes work well but it will require gentle use and some further “shake down” miles after such a long period off the road and there are various minor jobs to complete, mainly cosmetic. The interior is scruffy and much of the trim needs replacing – the front seats are solid but the leather will need re-trimming or pieces letting in, the carpet set is missing from the rear, the under-bonnet and boot area need some tidying, much of the chrome is tired and the paint on the roof is poorly finished.

As the price of 60’s Mini’s continues to rise the Hornet and Elf are following suit. This car needs some work but offers great value!!

Comes with new and old log books, “passport to service” and original newspaper advert from the supplying dealer.
Viewing near Woburn, Beds.
