The Wolseley Sixteen superseded the Wolseley Viper in 1933 as the 16hp Four-Door Saloon and the 16hp Special (close coupled) Saloon, its engine being mounted further forward than previous models, and featuring the new illuminated badge light. The 16hp Saloon was of a shorter wheelbase chassis than the previous Viper coachbuilt models and omitted the sun-visors. The appearance is similar, however, the addition of two small ventilators fitted to either side of the scuttle aids identification. The six-cylinder two-litre engine featured an overhead camshaft which was Wolseley's traditional value gear from 1919 to 1935. In total 2,232 16 Saloons were made.
Believed to have been first registered with the vehicle licensing authorities on the 24th of March of 1934, this Saloon Wolseley 16 came into current ownership in 2013. A charming pre-war Saloon, it is finished in Green over Black with complementing Green upholstery and door cards. The original brown logbook is included on file, as part of the history. Benefiting from previous starter motor and dynamo overhauls, the Wolseley is accompanied by a collection of invoices and old MOT certificates that date back to the 1980s. It is also offered with the original brown logbook, wiring diagrams, an original information book, an original lubrication chart and basic tool kit. A rare survivor.
