1957 Wolseley 6/90 Series II

A beautiful low mileage example of the Wolseley 6/90. This is a lovely car which has clearly been cherished and well loved by previous owners. The 6/90 design used the Italian-style body panels of the previous year’s Riley Pathfinder. For Wolseley enthusiasts, the 6/90 was visually distinctive from the contemporary Austin A90 and Morris Isis offerings, which in retrospect seemed like the last true Wolseley. The Pathfinder and 6/90 were Nuffield designs. The Wolseley received the new BMC C-Series straight-6, an engine that produced 95 hp (71 kW) coupled to a four-speed manual transmission. The 6/90 was not given the Pathfinder’s sophisticated rear suspension but some versions had Riley refinements like a right-hand gear lever on the floor. The series II 6/90s, introduced for 1957, included leaf springs on the live axle in the rear, a more conventional walnut dash and a floor-mounted gear lever. Overdrive and automatic transmission were available as options, this car benefiting from being a manual overdrive example.

In production for only 8 months, the Series II gave way to the Series III in 1958 after only 1024 had been made.
