At the time of the BMC merger (consisting of Austin and the Nuffield organisation) Wolseley were putting the finishing touches to its new, mid range car, the Four/Forty-Four, which would shun the new BMC engine rationalisation ideas by using the old MG Y-Type engine. The 4/44 consisted of an elegant, low slung four door saloon body (designed by ex-Jowet designer, Gerald Palmer) mated to the aforementioned Y-Type engine which produced 46bhp. This very original car is in delightful condition throughout. It has clearly never been a bad car, with it's original leather still in tact and with a lovely patina.
The car is perfect for taking to shows and rally events, and is one of the very sought after family cars of the 1950's. Paintwork and chrome are of a high standard, and the car drives along beautifully having had the engine rebuilt in 2006.
