Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery – March 22-24th 2019

National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham 

The Wolseley Register stand is ready to meet you!

The Wolseley Register is once again presenting a stand at this prestigous and fast-growing national event. The Wolseley Register is in Hall 5, at stand number 5-245. We have 3 cars being displayed along with a sectional Wolseley 6/110 engine and gearbox.


Wolseley 1500 Mk I

Wolseley 12/48

Wolseley 6/110 sectional C series Engine and gearbox

Wolseley Hornet Mk III




1939 Wolseley Series III 12/48:

Owned by a local Register Member who has been undertaking a dedicated restoration of the vehicle over the last 5 years. The car is well on the way to being in a roadworthy condition. A full photographic history of the restoration will be presented at the Show.

1958 Wolseley 1500 Mk I:

This vehicle was last on the road in 1991 and has recently been acquired by the current owner. The majority of the vehicle is now stripped down and it is hoped that the car can be fully restored. Work needed includes: a full brake replacement; significant repair to front wings and front panel; replacement sills and suspension rebuild. Work undertaken at the Show will consist of the rebuilding of front torsion bar suspension.

1969 Wolseley Hornet Mk III Automatic:

Recently acquired project being undertaken by an experienced Register Member who takes great care and pride in restoring and maintaining his fleet of Wolseleys. Prior to being taken on by the local Register Member, the car had sustained significant fire damage to the rear. In just 9 months, the new owner has fitted a new boot floor, new wheel-arches and inner wings, new back bulkhead and new floor from heel board to front bulkhead. It is hoped to complete the project within the next 12 months.

Sectional Engine & Gearbox:

This 6/110 engine and gearbox was professionally sectioned so that all internal moving parts can be seen. A fantastic display piece, originally used to demonstrate how all the engine parts work with each other.



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

Members and visitors will be welcomed to the Register stand where they can seek technical and membership advice and/or purchase club merchandise.   The List of Recorded Vehicles will be available to search live so visitors can check if their cherished Wolseley is known to the Register.

The full range of Wolseley Register merchandise will be on sale – advance orders can be placed for collection at the Show to save on postage costs.
