1963 Wolseley 1500
This charming Trafalgar Blue Wolseley 1500 has been lovingly restored with a real labour of love showing through. A tremendous amount of work has been put into this vehicle between 1992 and 1995 making this a show winning Wosleley. Three photograph albums accompany the car with the first file displaying the restoration work carried out. The car was completely stripped resulting in a full body rebuild. The engine was dismantled, rebuilt and painted before being fitted back into the car. The underneath was treated and photo's display the vehicle on its side with the underneath looking brand new. The quality of this restoration certainly showed through from day one as the Wolseley soon became a show winner with cups and trophies to its name. The remaining two photo albums display the car all over the West Midlands at shows from 1995 to 2002.
Now and many years since the rebuild, DFH 615A stands in stunning condition. Body and paintwork are still in a lovely condition requiring no improvements unless expecting a concours winning condition. The engine bay is still smart and presentable enough to show. The grey leather upholstery is still very smart with only a couple of small marks to mention. The carpets are excellent and the walnut dash is beautiful and highly polished. The Wolseley is a great pleasure to drive and handles perfectly with a strong and lovely sounding engine. The car has had careful use since restoration and whilst not in a show standard condition so many years on, it is still one of the better examples around.
Along side the photographic records are invoices for restoration work, handbook, Wolseley World Journals, MOT Certificates and a 1960 London Motor Show book (The Motor) featuring the model.
