1300 Mk II
1300 (R4 cyl, 1275 cc, 65 bhp)
WOLSELEY 1300 £931 (incl. P. T.)
Based on the Longbridge-built 1100/1300 front wheel drive saloons, the Wolseley is the luxury version of the single-carburettor type, but it is manufactured only as a 1300. The handsome Wolseley radiator shape (with traditional illuminated badge at night) sets it apart from other near-relatives. Internal trim is of a very high order, and the hydrolastic all-independent suspension provides a ride in keeping with the model's comfort. Normal transmission is four-speed manual all-synchromesh, but the highly effective AP four-speed torque-converter automatic is an optional extra.
Wolseley 1300 Mk. II
This is the brilliant 1300 concept, with the added distinction and luxury associated with the Wolseley tradition. A delight to drive, a joy to be driven in. Its flexible 1275-c.c. engine gives lively performance, and Hydrolastic suspension combined with front-wheel drive gives the smoothest of drives and road-hugging stability. Refined interior styling and deeply upholstered, well-planned seating add total comfort to this very elegant, high class car.
16/60 (R4 cyl, 1622 cc, 61 bhp)
This is a big, roomy, comfortable car, conventionally designed to make travel smoother and quieter. With automatic transmission as an optional extra, the Wolseley 16/60 is powered by the 'B' series 1622-c.c. engine, giving immediate response and satisfying acceleration to top cruising speeds. The roomy interior has many refinements: a beautifully styled walnut veneer fascia, with easy control of all instrumentation, deep pile carpets, and wide comfortable seating. This is family motoring at its best.
18/85 Mk II
18/85 (R4 cyl, 1798 cc, 86 bhp)
18/85 S (R4 cyl, 1798 cc, 95 bhp)
WOLSELEY 18/85 Mk 2
£1,262 (incl. P.T.)
S': £1.323 (incl. P.T.)
Like its smaller sister, the Wolseley 18/85 is a luxury version of a similar model in the Austin-Morris range. The 18/85 has an identical engine to the Austin-Morris 1800, as well as the celebrated transverse layout, front wheel drive, and hydrolastic suspension. It is exceptionally roomy inside, and the upholstery and trim are to a very high standard. 'S' version of the biggest Wolseley has a 97 h.p. twin-carburettor engine similar to the Austin and Morris 1800 'S' series, and similarly it can closely approach 100 m.p.h. Polished wood dash and reclining seats are standard.
Wolseley 18/85 Mk. II
Largest version of the front-wheel drive, transverse engine concept, the Wolseley 18/85 Mk. II is extremely roomy. Hydrolastic suspension gives wonderful stability, and power-assisted steering makes it very easy to control. Powered by a five-bearing 1798-c.c. engine, its performance is exhilarating. Interior appointment is luxurious and the beautifully upholstered seating is designed to give superlative comfort.
18/85 Mk. II 'S'
This variation of the Wolseley 18/85 has a super-tuned, twin-carburetter engine, giving added power and effortless long distance cruising, safety-matched with larger disc brakes.
