This delightful Wolseley 10 was registered on the 17th April 1939, finished in Black with Brown upholstery. We know from the Green continuation logbook that the Wolseley was registered in Warwickshire in 1974. The car stayed with one owner in Leamington Spa from 1974 to 1996 and then one owner in Stafford until 2008 meaning the car had just two owners in 34 years. The Wolseley comes with a comprehensive history dating back to the 1970's detailing regular maintenance, servicing and new parts. MOT certificates from 1992 show regular use over many years and comprehensive file also included a genuine, original handbook and various old logbooks.We first came across this Wolseley 10 in 2009 and it was a totally original time warp. The bodywork was solid and straight but the paintwork very poor and faded. The chrome work was covered in surface rust and the upholstery tatty. The engine was in need of work and brakes and suspension required re-commissioning. We sold DGY 519 to a long term regular customer and keen classic car restorer in Lincolnshire. The Wolseley made an ideal winter project and was subject of a full re-paint, re-chroming, a full professional re-trim and the engine rebuilt with re-ground crank, new pistons and bearings. The 1140cc engine was bored out to 1250cc and after a long winter in the garage, the Wolseley was road tested, MOT tested and ready for use. The project was complete and the car soon part exchanged with us for an Austin 10 requiring some light restoration. We quickly sold the car to a local customer and since then changed hands again, staying local in Malton. DGY 519 has covered around 2000 faultless miles since restoration and has attended many local shows and events in recent years.
