1958 Wolse­ley 1500

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Along with its Ri­ley 1.5 sib­ling, the Wolse­ley 1500 tar­geted buy­ers who wanted some­thing a tad more up­mar­ket than a Mor­ris Mi­nor – but, cun­ningly, a nearby BMC dealer would be able to keep it run­ning nicely.

This early 1500 was bought by the ven­dor in 2015 and has since had a full re-com­mis­sion­ing, me­chan­i­cal work in­clud­ing an un­leaded head con­ver­sion, re­built car­bu­ret­tors, new ig­ni­tion sys­tem, new ex­haust and brakes, and the orig­i­nal ra­di­a­tor be­ing re­con­di­tioned. The body and in­te­rior are orig­i­nal and rust-free, Barons says. Fun to drive, great-look­ing and not ex­pen­sive to run or main­tain – this is cer­tainly worth a bid.
