Wolseley Hornet Specials no.36

By November 6, 2018 Triple M corner

Major D.E.M. Douglas-Morris was a prolific rallyist & trialist throughout the thirties decade. He took part in all eleven Monte-Carlo Rallies betwen 1929 and 1939, six of the eight pre-war RAC rallies and over 20 of the major trials of the period. Here his 1931 Wolseley Hornet EW Hornet Coupe De-Luxe is pictured taking first prize at one of the south coast concours events (Eastbourne 1931) while parked alongside another Hornet coupe special, possibly bodied by the Surrey coachbuilder, Hoyal.
