I am doing some research work on a Wolseley 1500 Mk 3 which has been in my family’s ownership for around 53 years.
It has now been garaged for around 37 years and unfortunately, its documents are not available.
It was purchased by my Grandfather in Malta, from an Englishman, who must have travelled and/or lived in Malta.
Would appreciate any possible help to trace its manufacturing date, details of the first owner, date of sale, original colour etc.
Is there anywhere I can get this type of information with the body number and the engine numbers please?
Would appreciate any help.

Welcome to the Wolseley Register!
Unfortunately, I doubt that any records would exist for ther sort of information about previous owners that you are requesting. However, we may be able to help with some. May I suggest that you email our historian, Peter Seaword, as he is the person most likely to be able to help. His contact details can be found on the website, or in our magazine Wolseley World, which you should receive shortly.

Thanks for your feedback. Will definetley send an email to Peter Seaword for his assistance.
In the meantime i would like to ask two further questions:
1. Now that i know about it, how can i register my vehicle in this Wolseley Register?
2. Is there any official Authority in UK that can give me some answers to my questions. Say, with the body and engine numbers would they have the records of when this vehicle was purchased, by whom and the original colour for example? Do you think they would give me this information? Perhaps the transportation Authority there? Would you have their details please?

You should have registered your vehicles with us when you joined – did you not complete your car details on the application? A quick check to see if your car is registered is to look under the website heading ‘Your Account’and click on the ‘My Cars’ page. If it isn’t shown, please contact the membership secretary with your car details.
We also have a list of all known Wolseleys still in existence on the website. There is a lot of detail in the lists and they are quite complicated. Have a look at the ‘List of Recorded Vehicles page, which can be found under ‘The Cars’ main heading.
The official body for car records is the British Motor Museum at Gaydon. Hopefully Peter Seaword can explain how to request information from this museum.
