Footnotes

  • Although long since departed, Wolseley was one of Britain's foremost makes throughout the Edwardian period and into the 1920s. During WWI Wolseley manufactured Hispano-Suiza aero engines under licence, the overhead-camshaft valve gear of which inspired its earliest post-war introductions: the four-cylinder 10hp (1,261cc) and 15hp (2,614cc) models, added to the range for 1920. These advanced OHC engines were soon being used for racing. For 1925 there was an improved 10hp model on offer – the 11/22, which featured a longer wheelbase and for the first time was available with fabric saloon coachwork.

    The Wolseley Register has confirmed that this rare 11/22hp model was delivered on 1st December 1924. From the 1960s onwards it resided in Cardiff before being purchased by the current vendor in 1979. Apart from routine maintenance, any occasional engineering work has been entrusted to specialists such as Arthur Archer of Dunmow and Jonathan Wood of Little Stampford. Described by the private vendor as in generally very good condition, this delightful Vintage-era Wolseley is offered with a V5 document, MoT to August 2019, and an original instruction manual and spare parts list.
