Wolseley Hornet ‘Daytona’ Special, year 1935. Chassis number 203602. Colour crème white (Old English White) combined with a red leather interior and red carpet. Black mohair hood. This gorgeous Wolseley Hornet began life as a saloon car; in the year 2009 the automobile was extensively restored in Germany by a make specialist. In the rebuild the saloon bodywork was exchanged by a period Eustace Watkins (of London, U.K.) ‘Daytona’ bodywork which was also fully restored in the process. The car is powered by the original (overhauled) very smooth-running original 1271 cc straight-six engine which is mated to a four-speed manually operated gearbox. This fine special is in superb top condition and the car gives you that special pre-war driving experience to the fullest! The windscreen can be folded, something period owners did for a ‘free practise’ outing on the famous Brooklands motor course in England. This is a rare six-cylinder Hornet and it is a very desirable and very well built special!
