Wolseley 1500 MK 1 Sports Saloon.
The Wolseley was 1st registered in Newport,Gwent on the 19th of February 1959 and retains its original registration number (RDW 232 ) the car was purchased by a Mr and Mrs Morris also of Newport, they ran a Chemists Shop in the town centre. Due to a busy work schedule the Wolseley was only used occasionally for special days out, usually for a trip to the seaside and never in the rain. Anecdotal history written by the family confirm this and also confirm that the genuine total milage of just 19,870 miles is correct. When new the Wolseley was fitted with a lovely " Wales " St,Christopher Badge, i have old family pictures clearly displaying the badge which remains proudly attatched to the car. The Wolseley has passed from Father to Son to grand daughter before being owned by the last Wolseley enthusiast. It is all their careful meticulous ownership which has contributed to the car we have on offer today. Finished in the stunning period colours of Old Hall Beige over deep Maroon with the most wonderfull original interior. The pictures only tell part of the story, you need to sit inside this fantastic cabin to admire the craftsmanship attained by the manufactures. Being an early example the wood veneers extend not just to the dash board and door capping's, but flow up the windscreen pillars.You can also see in the pictures the high gloss original factory applied paint to the boot floor and spare wheel well. It was covered in years of dust when i removed the original rubber floor mat and spare wheel. I have applied a coat of polish and it looks factory fresh.The same can be said of the floors with no sign of any corrosion. On the road the Wolseley drives quite superbly, with perfect engine temperature and oil pressure. The Wolseley is currently being cleaned and prepared for the next owner. The pictures taken are as the car arrived.This is a wonderfull opportunity for someone to own one of the finest genuine Wolseley 1500,s left in the Country.
