Wolseley 18/85 & Six
Date Posted Year Description Price
30/09/17 1972 - K reg

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.

£1885 ovno by negotiation
27/09/17 1971

Wolseley 18/85 Mk2, Green with tan interior. I bought this car in April 2013 at an auction in Oxfordshire. It was being sold as an ex-army staff car. Not true. They did not use Wolseleys. It has an ex-WD engine with rod gear operation (manual gearbox) rather than cable. No power steering. Not a problem except at zero speed. Mechanically I think it is about as good as it gets. It is serviced every October and with the MOT in March – full greasing; anti freeze check and all the rest. Never had to add oil which is as clear after 6 months as when put in. Passes MOT easily. Timber work good, body and chrome could do with a good polish. Rear window heater doesn't work. General lights all OK but not really a car to be used after dark as headlights not very powerful. I try to take it out once a week - all year round – for about 20miles just to keep parts moving nicely. Small tear in drivers seat but I've got some leather and appropriate glue. New fog lights (ones in photos fell off on way to a show due to rust) although not wired in. Radio not wired in – needs a speaker. All this is trivial for anyone with a bit of capability and enthusiasm. All this is reflected in the price. New clutch, stainless exhaust; offside front hydrolastic displacer replace and pump up; and more smaller stuff (see servicing schedule). It has been shown at Leighton Hall; Lytham Hall; and a number of others in the North West each year since I bought it. I would like it to go to a good home where it can be brought up to scratch.Please call for further details.

Previous history of the car

David Parker (now living in Thailand) contacted me in July 2013. He had seen it in Classic Car Weekly. It was his car from new. He sold in about 1975. July 1983 Sold to Roger Colcombe. In 2013 we had a long telephone conversation. He said it was a 'shed'. He rebuilt it over a number of years and it was laid up. New boot lid; various other new body parts; new ex WD engine; new clock; new steering rack; bushes; trackrod ends; front cross member; new brake & clutch master cylinders; reconditioned vacuum brakes; & lots of welding. Re-sprayed. Underneath liberally coated with Hammerite. Original gearbox operation was cable, now rods. Handbrake had a curve in it. Seats were originals – leather. It does have what seems to be a period radio – but no speaker and not wired in. Reg No is genuine. Put back on the road in 2001 & used daily until 30 Nov 2007.
