Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show, with Discovery 2018

Billed as Spring’s best Classic Car Show, this event will be held at the NEC, Birmingham across 3 full days from 23rd to 25th March.

 The Wolseley Register is one of more than 150 clubs attending the 2018 Show, which offers exhibits ranging from “barn find” to concours condition. Come and see us in Hall 5 at stand number 820 which will display 6 exhibits:

1937 WOLSELEY Series III Super Six 21 Saloon – Originally purchased with black paintwork but now presented in black and yellow.  First owner was Sir Edward Cave and the car was used throughout the second World War for military work on airfields for the Ministry of Defence.  Used for extensive travels throughout Europe by a former Vice President of the Wolseley Register.  Now owned by a local Register Member and recently returned to roadworthy condition.

1938 WOLSELEY Series II: 14/56 – this vehicle has been restored by the current owner and currently requires a new steering box, which will be fitted at the Show over the weekend by a team of Register Members.

1958 WOLSELEY 15/50 – meticulously restored over a period of 17 years by the current owner who now uses it regularly for shows and events.



1957 WOLSELEY 6/90 – long term restoration project representing the model covered by the Register’s latest publication: “Wolseley 6/90: A Super Profile” available to purchase at the Show.

1963 WOLSELEY 1500 Mk III – restored in recent years by current owner.  Replacement of door rubbers to be undertaken at the Show.


1971 WOLSELEY 18/85 – used regularly for local shows and events.

The owners of each exhibit will be on hand to discuss their vehicles and restoration work previously completed or ongoing.
