This is a 1937/8 Wolseley 12/48 built just before World War II and is a very early series 3 model.
The car has been extensively restored by a retired motor engineer to a high standard. including engine and chassis. new timber floor. new brakes and a new clutch - the body was then disassembled and had a 'down to metal' strip down and repaint. Chromed items have all been re-chromed. Internal wood panelling has been re-lacquered. New carpets and roof-lining have been made and fitted. The original internal leather seats and door panel have been restored.
Due to the length of time the car has been off the road it's registration has lapsed and we are now waiting for an age-related plate from the DVLA. the car has been fully authenticated by the Wolseley Owner's Club Registrar.
The aforementioned works must have cost a small fortune and involved hundreds of hours of dedicated time so the car represents very keen value at today's asking price.
Comes with History File. Original Owner's Manual. New MOT. Spare parts. Will be supplied with new V5 and Reg Nr. Refurbished Lucas Spotlight will be re-fitted by time of sale.

By 1913 Wolseley was Britain's largest car manufacturer selling 3. 00 cars. The company was renamed Wolseley Motors Limited in 1914.
When Wolseley was auctioned by the receivers in February 1927 it was purchased by William Morris for £730. 00 using his own money. Possibly Morris acted to stop General Motors who subsequently purchased Vauxhall.
Like many of the Nuffield products of the late 30's. the 1938 Wolseley 12/48 would find itself still being produced after WW2 as a stop gap model. The 12/48 made use of the 1548cc over-head valve engine that had been used in various Morris / Wolseley cars throughout the 30's.
