Wolseley Hornet Specials no.59

By December 18, 2021Triple M corner

At the time this photograph was taken (February 25th 1939) this Wolseley Hornet (OG 7528) was already nine years old and competing against far more advanced machinery. The car was being driven by C.C. Evans at the SUNBAC Colemore Trial and was universally known as ‘Ophelia’. It was also a regular entry at this event which was located not too far away from its place of manufacture and first registration in the City of Birmingham.
