Footnotes

  • Introduced in 1948, the Wolseley 6/80 was an upmarket version of the Morris MS Six and had the same 2.2-litre overhead-camshaft engine, the differences being mainly cosmetic. The 6/80 was very popular with UK police forces, and many of the survivors are ex-police models.

    This well maintained Wolseley 6/80 was undergoing restoration work when the owner passed away, and in 2008 was bought at auction from the deceased owner's estate by the current enthusiast vendor, who has professed their delighted with the purchase. 'UVW 438' is finished in maroon with tan interior, the latter's front and rear seats having been professionally re-trimmed in leather prior to purchase, and since acquisition has benefited from having the paintwork flatted and polished. 'UVW 438' would surely be most welcome at the Goodwood Revival meeting, making a pleasant change from the ubiquitous police-liveried examples of this popular model.

    The car comes with a current MoT certificate, a V5C Registration Certificate, an original instruction manual, and assorted invoices for works carried out during the late 1980s/early 1990s, including chassis and body repairs, and an engine rebuild. Recently serviced, this rare example of a 'civilian' 6/80 is running well and ready to use.
