Wolseley Hornet Specials no.57

By October 1, 2021Triple M corner

These Light Car images from the LAT Collection depict a factory model and not a special that emanated from one of the specialist coachbuilding firms of the period. However, there is every possibility that the Wolseley Hornet Semi-Sports body was constructed by a contractor, the most likely candidate for that task being Carbodies of Coventry. The similarities between this body and that of the MG Midget are clearly apparent and as the model was likely to sell in low numbers such an arrangement would likely make economic sense. The model (which was fabric skinned) was only available for the 1931 season, much like the Morris Minor that shared the same model name. (Photoscans courtesy of Motorsport Images)
