This 1963 Wolseley 1500 Series III was restored over 2013 and 2014, and is described as in running order with no issues known. It was driven to the sale (around 25 miles) although hasn't been used throughout the rest of the winter. The car was registered in April 1963 and is showing 15,571 miles on its odometer. As an historic vehicle, the Wolseley no longer requires an MoT; its last expired in September 2021, after the test was undertaken the year before at an indicated 15,396 miles. There's a large history folder accompanying the Wolseley that includes past and previous V5Cs, BMC workshop manual, and assorted 21st century bills with many relating to the restoration. There are also photos taken during the restoration along with some club magazines and paperwork. A bill from July 2022 for £330 relates to work on the fuel, ignition and cooling system, including a carburettor rebuild and new water pump.
