The Wolseley Hornet was, along with its Riley Elf sister, an early attempt to produce an upmarket version of the Mini. Launched in 1961, the Hornet and Elf were given larger boots, rear fins and traditional upright grilles, along with leather seats and wood on the fascia. The models progressed from MkIs with 34bhp 848cc engines to MkIIs with 38bhp 998cc motors and then MkIIIs with concealed door hinges and wind‑up windows. As a MkII Hornet, this is arguably the most desirable of the variants, with the original body style but the more powerful engine.

This Wolseley was registered in May 1966, just before the progression from MkII to MkIII. It has been restored and still looks quite fresh, with a new‑looking interior, very good paintwork and a solid underneath. The vendor tells us that the car drives well with good oil pressure, describing it as a 'good, all‑round solid car that has covered just 1600 miles since 2002'.
