Wolse­ley 6/80

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Drive-it Day Special The 50 Greatest Drives - Nick Larkin

Large, im­pos­ing and pres­ti­gious, the Wolse­ley 6/80 is a joy to drive with its torquey His­pano-Suiza-de­rived 2215cc over­head-cam en­gine. The four-speed col­umn gearchange doesn’t like be­ing rushed but is fairly ac­cu­rate and the brakes are good. There is still body roll and un­der­steer – this is a big heavy car – but ride is ex­cel­lent and it re­ally is a great thrill to look through the split wind­screen and along the bon­net as you make rapid progress.
