1930 WOLSELEY HORNET - £28,000
Chassis number: 4910CF3
Registration number: 609UYE Originally BYM722
An original Abbot bodied 6 cylinder Wolesley Hornet. The car has had a mechanical restoration by the previous owner & old school type engineer resulting in a car in superb mechanical condition.
The paint is pale blue over navy wings & is in fine order being of recent origin. The car is reputed to be the 500 mile works Brooklands car raced in 1930. The car as lore has it was bought from the team in 1931 & registered on a 1931 number. When the car was bare metalled prior to paint, the original team colours were found underneath along with traces of the race number.
The car was purchased by the current owner from the estate of the deceased previous owner who had been in the process of restoring it. The anecdotal history came from his widow.
The interior of the car is black thoughout & a brand new black hood has just been fitted. The car sits on wire wheels shod with Blockley tyres. Perfrmance is surprisingly good from the little 6 cylinder engine. The car is of course eligible for a wide assortment of period events & hill climbs etc.
