The BMC & Leyland Show 2023 was once again held at the British Motor Museum, Gaydon, on Sunday 9th July 2023. This lively show attracted many clubs and individual entries, with a good turnout despite mixed weather conditions on the day.
The cars exhibited at the BMC & Leyland Show included Wolseley Farinas on other club stands and all 3 versions of the most popular Wolseley model, the 1500 were represented on the Wolseley Register stand. The Wolseley Register was well-represented, displaying 11 Wolseleys and covering a range of models spanning the years 1932 to 1975 and included: a Wolseley Sixteen from 1932, a Wolseley 12/48 from 1936, a Wolseley 6/90 from 1956, a Wolseley 15/50 and a Wolseley 1500 Mk 1 both from 1958, a Wolseley 1500 Mk II from 1961, a Wolseley 1500 Mk III from 1962, a Wolseley 16/60 and a 1500 Mk III both from 1963, a Wolseley Hornet Mk III from 1967, and, last but not least, a 18/22 “Wedge” from 1975!
The “Wedge” was reunited with former owner Nick Larkin who was pleased to see the car in use.
A new Member who had recently acquired a Wolseley 1300 joined the Register and the Regalia gazebo provided shelter from the mixed weather and another book-signing opportunity for the latest Profile book in the series produced by Register Members: “Wolseley Four-Fifty and Six-Eighty: A Super Profile”. The book (and other Wolseley related merchandise) is available from our online shop.
Thanks to all our exhibitors and to all who visited the club stand at this popular event.
Application details will be posted for the 2024 event as soon as available.
