1960 Wolseley 1500


SOLD £4796.00

1960 Wolseley 1500

Finished in Maroon B with superb original contrasting upholstery.

An RAC historic rally vehicle identity form, class B3 and dated 1992 together with photographs confirming its entry in to the Monte Carlo Rally of 1992.

The vendor informs us of the following;

"Supplied by Richard Taylor Garages Ltd Stourbridge and originally registered on May 23rd 1960 as "15BAB" this example appears from the DVLA copied registration documents and various other paperwork which is included in the history file to have been in the hands of a Mr E.G.Moody of Stourbridge, from new until 1991, interestingly there is a letter from Mr Moody consigning the car to Auction in July 1991 after the original registration number had been removed. There are photographs of an earlier restoration being carried out along with a good quantity of paperwork, invoices and previous MOT test certificates. During 1992 the car competed in the Historic Monte Carlo Rally and there is documentary evidence contained within the car history file including the Rally entry Form and photographs of the Wolseley in action. Mr Moody could never have imagined that the car he bought at Richard Taylor Ltd in May 1960 would end up competing in the Historic RAC Rally some 32 years later, or that it would still be on the road 56 years later."

An enormous history folder contains a massive amount of information - far too much to list - please allow some time to inspect the paperwork prior to the sale.

On site now for viewing.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.

Thank you.
