This 1300 Mk. II is an example of what is considered the best of the Wolseley ADO16 with more luxurious trim, twin carbs, wood dash and a distinctive strip speedometer. Presented with a Sand bodywork and complementary trim, this 50 year old car boasts its original chrome and paint in good order due to the fact it has been garaged and used sparingly its entire life, indeed a hark back to times when the family car was the most treasured of assets. The interior includes Britax Auto-Lok (inertia reel) seat belts and is stunning and even the driver's seat barely looks used. The veneered wood dash still has its, as-new, gloss and the distinctive strip speedometer, so much a feature of the ADO16 and looks like new. The twin-carb 1300 engine produced a healthy 65bhp, only 5bhp below the highest output engine fitted to an ADO16 when new. The engine has recently been removed, the engine bay restored, new clutch and all oil seals and rubber mounts replaced, so this is still a lively little car that will easily keep pace with modern traffic.
Its first owner clocked up 18,000 miles in 16 years before selling it to Mr and Mrs Leo Hill who have kept it in the family ever since. Used by their daughter for some years, it reverted to their care and for decades attended shows with the Wolseley Register of which its owners were keen members. The vehicle has completed multiple times the London to Brighton classic runs and been the winner of the Wolseley National Show, it was a well-travelled car at the local and national shows over its lifetime. Some of the awards and show plaques are photographed with the car, along with the Passport to Service stamped by the original selling dealer, an original sales brochure and the cars handbooks along with several tax discs. We are informed that recently new rear brake cylinders, master cylinder seals, rear brake pipes and flexible hoses, fuel lines, air filter, engine oil and filter and battery were all fitted. The car has an MoT test certificate which is valid until October 2022 and has no advisories.
