Hello to you all. After a life of prewar Riley’s I am now considering the world of Wolseley. Now orientating on the smaller cars like the Hornet and Wasp from the nineteenthirties. My question is if there is a list of chassis numbers available for the Hornets and Hornet Specials?
November 27, 2012
Due to the number of Fake Hornet Specials being created, there is no public list.
The problem with those before the 1934 models, i.e. those with the inlet & exhaust on the nearside, is that Wolseley did not stamp the number on the chassis. It was on the axles but usually can not be read. The numbers were on brass plates fastened on the bulkhead, thus easy to fake.
1934 onward the same brass plates were used, plus the chassis number was on the nearside of the chassis, as well as on the axles.
The same applies to Nines, Wasps etc.
If you require further info, please contact me direct.
