1958 Wolseley 1500
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.
