1965 Wolseley Hornet Shorty Kent, United Kingdom

Private : £11,995

Sellers description

Wolseley Hornet Shorty that was superbly converted in the late 1970's early 80's.

More recently the car was subject to a full restoration to the condition you see it in now. Invoices on file total £10,600 and much more has been spent.
The Restoration was carried out by the world renowned Mini experts at Bill Richard's Racing in Ashford in Kent and the interior trim was by Bryan Purvess also a Mini expert and author on the subject.
The car has huge history file with all receipts, photographs, a Heritage Certificate and the original Workshop Manual as well as the Driver's Handbook. The car has a current MOT.
As you can imagine, there are many bespoke items on this car including the 'Shorty' badge and the rear boot rack. Amazingly, the boot is big enough to take a full shopping trolley of groceries. Quite amazing for a car that is only 263cm long, 134cm wide and 125cm high.
The 998cc engine pulls very well and sounds amazing and the everything works as it should. There is a classic styled CD player in the car so the soundtrack to the drive is great.
It is worth noting that the brakes have been uprated to discs for peace of mind.
Shorty has been in our ownership for a decade and we have had a lot of fun in the car especially on the London to Brighton runs and numerous shopping trips. This is one car that always raises a smile and looks fantastic driving around the coastal towns near where we live,
There is a full tonneau cover that comes with the car for inclement weather with a drivers side that rolls back. There is also a full car cover and 2 matching umbrellas. The car also has 2 under seat picnic baskets that are Wolseley branded.
We are in no rush to sell and would rather hangout for the price as the car really is worth it when you see all the time, love, care and expenditure that has been bestowed on it resulting in a very unique and attractive car.
Shorty - It's a small world.
