1967 Wolseley Hornet Mk3 for sale

Post  59ddpanel on Wed Nov 04, 2015 1:49 pm

A bit of history before I list the spec,
For sale is our ’67 Hornet in Maroon and Toca White – we bought the Hornet in June 2012 from an old gentleman who had become too old to drive. He originally owned the car many years previously, it had then stayed local to his area and he then bought it back in 2010. He kept it garaged (under dust-sheets) and passed to us previous MOT documents and old tax discs etc.
I used the car as a daily driver towards the end of 2012 and into 2013 and ran the car through that bad winter we had – it lived on our driveway, performed brilliantly and was very reliable. I used a half car cover over night and it never failed to start or deal with the heavy snow we had here in the Midlands. We then garaged the car around May 2012 and have used it ever since as a fun car with summer commutes to work etc. It’s started and generally used every week and now resides permanently in the garage.
The car isn’t a show car (I’ve had those and ended-up never driving them...) and we deliberately searched-for and bought one that we wouldn’t be too precious about using every day and that still looked good and was solid and reliable. It thus does have some marks, paint on driver’s door/scuttle panel/front n/s wing not as shiny as rest of car, some local bubbling but is a very reliable, good-looking and well-spec’d car that you’re not terrified to leave in the Tesco car park. It never fails to attract attention when we’re out and about, especially when fuelling-up  Smile

Spec:
1098cc engine on a standard 4 speed manual gearbox (synchro on all gears) – pretty nippy!
HS2 single carb
Mini Spares water heated inlet manifold
LCB manifold & RC40 twin box exhaust (c/w tailpipe extension)
copper head gasket
alternator
radiator changed at some point (as it has Rover sticker on top)
