1913 WOLSELEY 24/30 HP TWO SEATER - £95,000
Registration no. J 1296
Chassis no. 20034
Engine no. 34/1134
A large & imposing Edwardian 2 seat tourer; this 24/30hp model sports Wolseleys large 5 litre six cylinder engine giving ample power & easy modern day cruising speeds. The engine is grouped in three sets of two cylinders sharing a common crank shaft.
This car is an up-market model produced between 1911 and 1915. 'J 1296' was sold new to Mr Cecil J Sadler, of Durham via agents George & Jobling of Newcastle-upon-Tyne fitted with factory two-seater coachwork. The car remained in the same ownership until purchased by Mr Max De Redder in the early 1960s. Mr De Redder did little in way of restoration but did research the car's history and secure its original registration. Following restoration the car took part in several VCC rallies without problems but has seen little use in the last few years.
The car is a large imposing machine with very upright coachwork & a black leather bench type seat for two or three people up front. To the rear is a useful storage area. The car is VCC dated, certificate 2513 as being of 1913 origin. The hood is in good condition & is of black mohair. The dash has a full set of very period instrumentation located on the lower bulkhead.
Finished in Burgundy & Black with gold pinstripe fine lining, the car presents very very well. It is a pleasure to drive with an easily mastered gear box. Assorted brass fittings adorn the car including headlamps, side lamps & a brass horn. An exterior klaxon is fitted as is a shell spare fuel tank.
These large engined Edwardians do not often come to market & this one is well worth a look.
In stock and ready for immediate viewing.
