Footman James 39th Bristol Classic Car Show

16th -17th June 2018
Royal Bath & West Showground, Shepton Mallet, Somerset BA4 6QN
9:30 – 4:00 each day

This is the longest-running event of its kind in the UK celebrating legendary marques as well as nostalgia-filled icons.  Known and loved for its friendly atmosphere, the intrigue and interest starts the minute you get through the gate with the hundreds of vehicles which pack into the classic car park.  A wide range of independent traders including specialist suppliers of parts, tools and vintage memorabilia, along with service providers will be spread throughout the 3 halls.  One of the largest areas is dedicated to a huge indoor autojumble where show-goers lose themselves for hours rummaging around the bargains in search of that rare find.  On Saturday, visitors can view the lots in the Charterhouse Auction before they go under the hammer on Sunday.

The Wolseley Register stand will be at S10 in the Sedgemoor Hall where two very early exhibits and one later vehicle will be presented:

1919 Wolseley 16/20 C7 in dark green with green upholstery and canvas hood.  This large Edwardian 5-seat tourer is in good running order and has recently been acquired by a Wolseley Register Member.

 

 

1927 Wolseley 11/22 E4 is a 4 seater Deluxe model ordered through main agent Weybridge Automobiles Ltd, and delivered to Kingston Hill Motors in July 1927.  Apart from an apparent move to Buckinghamshire in 1937, its whereabouts are unknown until it was bought for £300 from a lockup in Egham in the 1970’s.   After renovation, it spent 3 decades or so mainly on static display in various car dealerships in Sunningdale (a stone’s throw from a 1925 E4 saloon), Hartley Wintney and Kew.’

In complete contrast, our other exhibit will be a 1967 Wolseley 16/60 – this local example has only been with the current owner since being purchased at auction 2 years ago.  It had been previously restored and was awarded “Best Family Saloon” at the 2017 Mendip Classic Run.  The model has a 1622 cc engine and over 63,000 were produced during its 10-year run.  It was one of the last Farina style body cars with more than 13,700 being exported, mainly to Eire, New Zealand and South Africa.

Visitors and Register Members will be welcomed to the club stand where technical and membership advice will be available, alongside the full range of club merchandise.  Advance orders can be placed for collection at the Show.  View the online shop or contact the Regalia Manager for more information.
