Lot 2103


1962 Wolseley 1500 Saloon
Reg. no. SFF 481
Chassis no. WH52 - 1115
Engine no. 36266
Launched in 1957 together with its close sibling the Riley One-Point-Five, the Wolseley 1500 was based on the floorpan of the Morris Minor, but with a BMC B-Series engine of 1489cc and of course, being a Wolseley, a much more luxurious ambiance. Intended for families who did not want or need to stretch the budget for a larger car such as Wolseley’s own 15/60, the 1500 offered the same level of luxury in a small package. The interior was appointed in true Wolseley tradition, with a wooden dashboard, while most cars also had leather seats. Available in a wide range of attractive colour combinations, the 1500 proved to be a successful combination of style, luxury and economy, and found great favour among the British middle classes, over 100,000 being sold by the time production ended in 1965.
This 1962 1500 is said to be in good, very original condition, with a current mileage of 77,000 which the vendor believes to be genuine. Owned for over seven years, the vendor has used the car regularly and states that it is ‘on the button’, and drives and stops well. There is a V5c offered with the car.
