Auctioneers Notes

The Wolseley 1500 was a unique car in its day, a compact, luxury motor car with all the trimmings that her larger cousins had i.e. leather upholstery, walnut dash and door caps, etc. This car on offer at SWVA has lived in Dorset for most of its life and the file that comes with her is very comprehensive and includes DVLA owners records, showing the first owner had the car from ’58 to ’92 and the second owner had her from ’92 – 02. There are loads of invoices which include the restoration which was carried out in the mid nineties, old MOT’s and log books. She is not concourse but a very usable classic car that presents well. May be viewed by appointment at our premises.
