Morris 1800 Mk3, manual, genuine 22600 miles from new!

Damask Red with Spanish Rose unmarked interior. Carpets are good but sun-faded. The headlining is perfect, just as from the factory with the original BL glue marks. The exterior is good with no rot evident on the bodywork or underneath the car. The paintwork has thinned in a couple of places due to over polishing.

The car spent most of its life in a private museum in Dover which explains the low miles. This is an original unmolested car. The current owner purchased the car and drove it with out fault from Dover to Sheffield. Only selling as downsizing in property and have no space for the car – will only sell to a genuine enthusiast who will cherish and look after this car.

There is every M.O.T. with the car to verify the mileage as correct. A few invoices for recent work carried out including new clutch cylinder. To be fair the car would benefit from a complete respray to improve its exterior appearance.

Wolseley Six for restoration, automatic, just over 57,000 miles, Cosmic Blue with blue interior.

Main work required is to the offside, requires a new front valance and the bottom halves of the doors (see images). Away from that you'd not guess it was the same car. Rear is lovely with good chrome and the nearside is very good too. Overall apart from the offside and front it shows few signs of any rust.

The rubbers are all good so the interior, whilst suffering from normal Wol-6 pathetic finishing on the seats, is good. Good tyres too. The missing hubcaps are in the boot as are the front indicators. It's been well maintained by the previous owner but now needs the carbs need taking off and cleaning up.

It'll make a lovely car when done - nice colour too!

AUSTIN DEALER POSTERS FOR SALE

2 original dealer posters. Generally in very good condition.

Around 1973 I went to England during the holiday-season with my parents and asked local BL dealers for documentation. Some gave me posters of the 1800/2200 and now (still a car enthusiast/writer but linked to the Citroën brand - nobody is perfect!) I'm looking to sell them. Open to sensible offers. Or, if somebody would like to exchange them against equally rare Citroën documentation let me know!

There is a Unipart Workshop Manual (hardback) for the 2200 range, Wolseley 18/85 manufacturer's handbook (a little tatty) and what appears to be a manufacturer's maintenance handbook in a vinyl cover titled Wolseley Six.
