The Wolseley Six


Recommended Posts

Found out that there were just 53 Sixes licenced at the end of 2009. That means I'm about 30 cars "light" on my database.


Can I ask you all to keep an eye out for any you see at shows or just on the road please? I know I missed one (apparently it had over sized wheels and low profile tyres on :roll: ) down near Canterbury. Friends saw it, but didn't take any pictures or even take the reg. no. :(

Not many is it?

No. This makes it all the more important the ones left are saved.


No doubt the Sixes poor fuel consumption (compared to the 1800) didn't help with their survival.


Just been through my list again and have found another three that have since been taxed, but that still leaves 27 I don't know about.

the green ex-army one? Lives in Cheltenham. I took a pic recently but I can't find it.

Thanks. I'll have a look through your posts.


I also saw a blue one on WHYST or in the retro-rides abandoned cars thread with a 78 tax disc on it.

Cheers. Will have a look on RR as well. Same user name?

I'm not sure if this one counts keef, since I'm pretty confident this isn't one of the roadworthy ones:

Can't remember if the registration was NAL939M or N.

Spotted at the end of January this year (and last year) at a village near Redmire in the Yorkshire Dales, whilst out for a walk. The rear end's visible from the main street and the front end from a public footpath. Will scout out the village name if you're interested.

EAT 440L and HAE 590K are currently for sale on ebay.

Yep. Have this listed as they have the potential to be back on the road, but of course they aren't currently taxed or on SORN, so don't appear in the SMMT/DVLA's figures.

I went to Haworth a couple of years ago, and these were visible from the road. 154 Hebden Road, Keighley it says............. A6033
