Throughout the early thirties the coachbuilding trade produced a plethora of bodies for the very popular Wolseley Hornet chassis. In order to keep the buying public abreast of the range of bodies available the predominant motoring magazines of the period regularly produced articles on the topic. The latest of these has been added to the Wolseley Hornet ‘Sports’ & ‘Specials’ page in the Member’s Area of the site. This one is dated April 1932 and appeared in The Motor magazine and can be found under a blue button towards the top of the page.

March 1931 ‘Motor’ Hornet Specials article added.
