    £39,950 £39,950

    £39950 Introduced in 1930, the Hornet deployed Wolseley's bevel-driven, overhead-camshaft, six-cylinder engine in a lengthened Morris Minor chassis equipped with hydraulic brakes. Its power-to-weight ratio was exemplary among contemporary 1.3-litre cars, the smooth and flexible six pulling from walking pace to more than 60mph.

Lively acceleration, excellent road holding and cornering characteristics, together with compact dimensions to facilitate manoeuvring and parking are features which have never before seen so effectively combined in a four seat saloon. On the road our Wolseley Hornet, ALX165H drives as described in the models sales brochure. Its rebuilt engine does offer impressive performance with very good acceleration and the Wolseley really does handle superbly. The Hornet has arrived with current MOT test until December 2015 but will
