WOLSELEY SERIES III 12/60, 16/65, 18/85

Saloon, various specials.

All three cars came on the same wheelbase, 104 1/2ins, and incorporated the Series III chassis improvements - the cruciform bracing, forward engine mounting and revised springing. 14hp car used the 12/48 body with longer bonnet and it cost £285, as opposed to £320 and £325 respectively for the 16 and 18. An 18/85 took the London to Cape Town record in 1938, despite falling off a bridge in the Congo!
