Craner Classic Cars are now proudly offering a 1958 Wolseley 1500 for sale in quite remarkable condition, one of the rarer two-tone Maroon and Primrose models. The 62-year-old classic comes with a very extensive history file and photographic restoration file. This is an older restoration which is still in fine condition today.The car has crisply-defined corrosion-free wheel arches and rock solid sills and underside. It bears new window rubbers and the chrome is also in fine fettle. The two-tone paintwork is echoed harmoniously in the car's two-tone upholstery, and overall the appearance of this charming Wolseley is very impressive. The outstanding appearance of this 1500 doesn't end there – the engine bay is probably as clean as any other engine bay on any classic car anywhere, with every little nook and cranny under the bonnet free of any sign of dust or grime, evidence of just how well this car has been maintained over the years.The wooden dash and instrument cluster are both excellently preserved and amongst the car's most stylish and characteristic features.The 1500cc B-Series engine and 4-speed synchromesh gearbox deliver a reassuring driving experience. In 1957 The Motor magazine tested a Wolseley 1500 and reported a top speed of 76mph, and the car is easily able to keep pace with modern traffic.The Wolseley 1500 was originally pitched as an upmarket alternative to the beloved Morris Minor, and was a very popular car when it first appeared in 1957. They have now become highly sought-after and collectible cars, with prices steadily rising to reflect this.This beautiful classic has recently had more than £3000 lavished on it, bringing it up to show-winning condition.Our head mechanic at Craner Classics, involved in classic car restoration for more than 40 years, recently summed up this Wolseley perfectly when asked who might buy it: “Someone who wants a reliable, easy-to-maintain car that they can be proud of at shows and that they can also use every day.”We expect demand to be high for this particular car, and therefore strongly recommend interested parties call us on 07806 693 878 to arrange a viewing rather than email.
