Footnotes

  • The Wolseley-Siddeley operation was one of the larger British manufacturers of the Edwardian era, catering for all ends of the market, although production focused heavily on mid-horsepower range cars, aimed at the middle classes. Austin, Daimler, Talbot, Rover and Sunbeam were the main competitors for this section of the middle market and, remarkably, all of these companies were to survive along with Wolseley, albeit in amalgamated form, through six or more decades.

    This Wolseley-Siddeley is powered by the four-cylinder, cast in pairs, 16/20hp engine which succeeded the highly successful 14hp model and which offered still more power for the longer distance motor tour. The coachwork for this car was copied at the time of restoration from the 14hp car, IK 528, also offered in this sale from the Lucey Collection. It is finished in maroon livery and furnished with tan buttoned upholstery. A beige hood and side screens and a one-piece windscreen provide excellent weather protection and the car is equipped with Powell & Hanmer self-contained, brass, acetylene headlamps with Lucas no.724 oil side lamps and a Lucas oil rear lamp. The car enjoys the benefit of dual coil/magneto ignition and is equipped with a Watford 0-60mph speedometer and carries a Stepney wheel securing rim on the offside running board. The car is equipped with a three-speed gearbox with worm-drive rear axle and sits on 815 x 105mm wheels.

    The early history of this car is not clear although there is correspondence from the 1950’s/60’s which perhaps suggests that, when originally found, it carried later coachwork. The car is offered with a buff Eire registration book which notes, incorrectly, the chassis number as being 11022, although the engine number is correctly stated. The car bears a chassis plate on the dashboard clearly stating the car number as 11013. We feel that this car will respond well to gentle recommissioning and some tidying and improvement to provide a practical and relatively quick Edwardian touring car, suitable for the longer distance event.
