Footnotes


  • This overdrive-equipped Wolseley 6/110 saloon originally belonged to the late Lord Kenneth Clark of Saltwood Castle, Kent, the celebrated author and writer/presenter of BBC Television's ground-breaking documentary series, 'Civilisation', first screened in 1969. 'DKT 221C' was supplied on 16th July 1965 by Saltwood Garage to Lord Clark, who clearly loved the car, as he kept it until 1982. This means that the Wolseley was his means of transport during the writing and production of 'Civilisation'. It is also quite likely that his eldest son, MP and motoring enthusiast, the late Sir Alan Clark, also drove 'DKT 221C' during its 17 years at Saltwood Castle.
    The current odometer reading is a believed-genuine circa 31,000 miles, there being MoT certificates and a certification document dated 8th October 1981 on file verifying the mileage at that time as 20,439. In addition to the foregoing, the history file also contains a driver's handbook, workshop manual, numerous photographs, and a number of tax discs, the most recent of which expired on 31st July 2012. The current (lady) vendor purchased the Wolseley at auction in 2013. It has since been re-commissioned with new parts - including a clutch, fuel pump, and stainless steel exhaust - and is said to run and drive very well.
