Austin 1800 Mk2 Automatic, I bought this rust-free LEFT-HAND-DRIVE car two years ago from a well-known LOCI member and had its restoration finished by my local garage Donnington Classic and Sports Cars. The previous owner had fitted new black carpets and new seats with black upholstery and had the car painted Persian Blue. Donnington fitted new window seals with chrome inserts, braking system, tyres, ball joints, hoses, Tex mirrors, ignition etc. and reconditioned the carburettor and alternator. Car is in THE NETHERLANDS.

Austin 1800 Mk2, over the past 3 years has had new drive shafts, wheel cylinders, brake flexi hoses, clutch master cylinder, new alternator, fitted with ex-MoD engine/gearbox package, new exhaust system.

Paintwork leaves a bit to be desired due to high summer temperatures followed by bitter winters in France where car has been located. Windscreen and rear window seals are watertight but would benefit from new ones. Car is RIGHT-HAND DRIVE.

Car is now back in UK and being sold on behalf of a LOCI Member through Steve Walker at Oldcott Motors in Kidsgrove, Staffordshire. Tel 01782 782 081 for more details.

Wolseley 18/85 & Six
Date Posted Year Description Price
22/06/18 1973

Wolseley Six, This may well be the most original Wolseley Six remaining. It has covered 20,000 miles from new and is unrestored. The Damask Red paint is that with which the car left the factory. In superb order throughout and winner of a concours award at the Wolseley Register National Rally in 2016.

The engine, a straight six ohc of 2200cc, is turbine-smooth. Wolseley used a foam-backed nylon upholstery for the wearing surfaces of the Six’s seats which has not lasted well however little the cars have been used. I had this replaced with high-grade leather, carefully colour-matched to the rest of the interior. This ‘upgrade’ apart, the interior is totally original. Carpets are unmarked and the wood veneers are in excellent order.

Known history from new. The car was laid-up from 1991 to 2016 but has been carefully recommissioned and has covered 3000 miles in the last two years, so that all issues resulting from the lay-up have been addressed.

If you want a Wolseley Six, I don’t think you will find better. If you were thinking of an 18/85, come and be charmed by a Six which is much more refined and has the engine this bodyshell was designed for.

Wolseley 18/85 Mk2, At present on SORN. Engine milage 69,000+ but under 70,000, starts OK. A previous owner had it converted to manual gear change from auto. I've owned the car since 2010, I had the body resprayed in Mallard Green in 2013. New front & back screen rubbers, inc. chrome insert trim. There is a crack in the front screen but I have a replacement. The doors are on the car I have a complete interior (Green from an Austin 1800), inc; pillar trims, footwell trims, door cards and carpet but no underlay. The parcel shelf is in a bad state but I have kept it to give a template. The walnut dash was replaced and requires finishing, securing. I have everything to complete the restoration, except enthusiasm, lack of time. I would like the car to go to someone who will restore this vehicle to its former glory, it is too good to scrap. Please call for further details.
