This image was first published in the 14th April 1933 edition of The Autocar. It shows a 1933 Windover bodied Wolseley Hornet Coupe special. The coachbuilding firm of Windover were based in Colindale, North West London having moved from their original premises in Huntingdon during the mid-twenties. They were historically renown for building high quality bodies on prestigious chassis although by 1933 lesser marques were receiving their attention and it is said that workmanship and quality dropped-off at this time. This Hornet Coupe Special is certainly pleasing on the eye and the coachwork looks to be outstanding. (Autocar photo-scan courtesy of LAT Images)
