Description

Wolseley Six (Landcrab): Manual/ Power Steering



The ADO17 was the model code name used by BMC for a range of large family cars manufactured between 1964 and 1975. The car was originally sold as the Austin 1800, but Morris and Wolseley models followed, later designated as the Austin/ Morris 2200 and the upmarket Wolseley Six.



The ADO17 was voted European Car of the Year for 1965 and the contemporary Wolseley sales brochure does not hold back. British Leyland marketing (never shy) advises that the Wolseley’s elegance comes from “having the right background” & “keeping good company” while the fast life “begins with the Wolseley Six”. Happy days indeed.



Our example was sold new by Saville Motors, Stratford Road Solihull to Mr V L R Dugdale of Camberley, Surrey on 17th August 1973 and the ‘6’ had factory power steering and an automatic gearbox - later replaced with a manual box and gaining a glass sunroof.



At Milestone Classics we do like finding classic cars that can be used & enjoyed immediately and our Wolseley Six is one of the straightest cars that you could wish to find. The car was parked up in 1994 by the then owner and purchased in November 2018 in an executor’s sale after 24 years under a dust cover. The body is exceptional with lovely Damask Red paint, outstanding panel fit and the red velour interior is super comfortable and very British Leyland.



On the road the 6-cylinder engine does not disappoint, is remarkably capable and a real pleasure to drive comfortably coping with modern road conditions.



With just seven owners in fifty years the history file contains old MOTs back to 1978, invoices, V5’s etc and an original Sales Brochure.



The Wolseley Six is one of the rarest BMC models from this era of motoring and delivers a level of luxury & performance superior to other BMC offerings of the period.



Ready to use and enjoy this is a perfect entry level classic and we expect her to find an appreciative new home very quickly.
