1932 Wolseley Hornet Saloon

Owned by our vendor since 1996; not been on the road since; appears to be complete and in lovely original condition; oily rag motor, ripe for recommissioning; fantastic opportunity

Unveiled in 1930 to the general public, the Wolseley Hornet came in all sorts of shapes and sizes and quite often was presented with bespoke specialist coachwork. As you can see, this one is still with its original saloon body, which seems pretty sound and ready to go.

Last on the road in 1995/96, when it was advertised in the Exchange & Mart (sorely missed!), it was subsequently bought by our vendor. It was described as taxed and MOTd, in complete and original condition with no restoration. Priced at £3,995, it couldn’t be resisted and is likely to have been driven into the garage from where it has just come.

The old logbooks on file suggest that this little Hornet has only had four or five registered keepers throughout its life and the first three are likely to be the same person, based at different addresses. It has not been started for some time so it will need some re-commissioning. The engine turns and everything seems to be present from what we can see.

Looking like a great opportunity at the estimate published here, the interior is as ‘oily rag’ and genuine as the exterior.
