Footnotes

  • A British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate no. 2005/6383 with this car records that the September 1957 manufactured Wolseley 1500 with factory chassis and engine numbers still matching was first despatched to main agents T H Nice and Co of Cambridge, where according to a previous owner the Mk1 saloon is likely to have remained in storage for thirty-five years, only emerging onto the road and gaining the current registration in March 1992.
    Fitted at some time with a Mk2 front panel and glassfibre front wings, the bodywork has been repainted in two-tone Alhambra dark green and lighter Island green and has largely original interior with fleck vinyl trimmed seats with inserts in Alhambra leather and wood dash and door cappings. More recently, as confirmed by a February 2006 receipt, refurbishment was carried out to doors and windows, whilst the vendor advised us that starter motor and brakes will have received attention before the sale. The 11,557 mileage displayed when consigned is authenticated by readings taken for eight MOT test certificates from 2001-2008, the current certificate valid until May of next year, the historic vehicle tax-free disc current until April.
