This turned up later in the day.

It got more attention than any of the other cars on show.
I recomended this site to him and he seemed very interested.

I seem to remeber he said all he had to do to get it through MOT was to get the trafficators to work again, apart from the obviouse service nothing else needed doing, and a wheel bearing.

I am copying the text from his fact sheet, make it easier to read.

Quote:

BARN FIND AWAKES AFTER 50 YEAR BREAK
Wolseley Hornet Saloon (1935)
6 cylinder 1378cc engine


This totally original Wolseley Hornet sallon has been off the road for half a century since the previous tax disc expired in 1962.

This car was first registered in Perthshire in 1935 and after a couple of ownership changs was acquired by an enthusiast who added it to his private collection of over 50 vehicles, it reamined in a dry barn untill the owner died in 2010 and was subsequently sold in one of Scotland's biggest ever auction sales of a single collection of vintage cars.
The purchaser was a trader from Kent, who, with light recommissioning, obtained a new MOT in 2011. The car was then sold on again to another enthusiastwho planned to restore it. However, after only a few month of
ownership, he died before a new registrationlog book could be obtained. After a purely chance conversation the owner's son, the car was purchased in July 2012. With minor repairs to the trafficatord and a new wheel bearing fitted, a fresh MOT was obtained and the car finally returned to the road.

Having covered only 35,000 miles from new, everything including the original paintwork, carpet set, seats, pedal rubbers, rear blind etc. are just as they were 50 years ago!

Owner:G Storey.

A barn find we all dream of.

Even the wireing is in reasonable condition, so the owners said.

A real time warp.
