1933 Wolseley Hornet Eustace Watkins
From 62 year ownership; new pistons; brake overhaul; a fun and competitive VSCC eligible car
This pretty Wolseley has been in the vendor's hands for 62 years, having been passed on to him by a relative who had stored the car for someone who had driven it into his gate!
Looking slightly sorry for itself, it was soon put back on the road and has been a regular companion ever since.
It has always been refered to as having Eustace Watkins coachwork and there are many similarities which would suggest this is correct. Given the passage of time, you will need to make your own minds up on the origin of the bodywork, but it certainly predates 1958.
It has received some recent work to the engine, with a replacement conrod and associated whitemetal and has been running and driving on site. It has potential, as do all Wolseley Hornets, to offer decent performance in a competitive package with lots of opportunity for use.
