Footnotes

  • Wolseley entered the 1930s in the personal ownership of William Morris, passing into the control of Morris Motors in 1935; from then on its products were more closely related to their Morris cousins mechanically, while retaining Wolseley’s own overhead-camshaft engines and characteristically more luxurious interiors. The overhead cam was soon gone, though Wolseley did at least enjoy the advantage of having the overhead-valve versions of Morris’s sidevalve engines. Introduced for 1937, the 18/80 used the same chassis as the 14/56 (Wolseley’s equivalent of the Morris 14) but boasted a 2,321cc overhead-valve twin-carburettor ‘six’ that endowed the car with lively performance and a top speed of 80mph.
    This Wolseley 18/80 was purchased from Mr Rupert Hart in 1977 and last MoT’d in 1979. The car benefits from mechanical refurbishment carried out in 2002 (invoice available) while the body is described as requiring a complete overhaul. Offered with correspondence, old-style logbook and Swansea V5.
