Welcome from Wolseley Register Chairman Clive Button
Welcome to the Wolseley Register, whether you are a visitor to our website, curious about Wolseley motor cars, or are considering applying for Membership. We have worked hard to put a lot of information on our website but if you can’t find what you are looking for, please don’t hesitate to contact our enquiries team firstname.lastname@example.org If you would prefer to speak to someone, you will find phone numbers under the ‘Contact Us’ tab.
The history of Wolseley cars is well known, and is gone into elsewhere on the website. Wolseley cars were always reliable, well finished and equipped, usually with more power and performance than their elegant and understated outward appearance suggested. As a result of these admirable qualities, they attracted a loyal customer base of discerning and appreciative individuals and organisations –hence their use throughout many decades by professional people, the Services and Police Forces.
The Wolseley Register was formed over fifty years ago and is by far the longest established and largest club which caters for all models of Wolseley. Membership is worldwide. We have resources and expertise to help you enjoy your Wolseley, which no rival club can match. We enjoy excellent relationships with other specialist clubs which cater for particular models of Wolseley and many of our Members belong to one of these clubs as well as to the Register.
From the beginning, an important aim of the Register was to compile a record of all known surviving Wolseley cars. This List of Recorded Vehicles (LoRV) is something unique to the Register and is an important resource for research and checking vehicles.
My own involvement with the Register began in 2006 when I bought a 1937 Wolseley 25 HP Drop-head Coupe. To this I have added a 1973 Wolseley Six. Wolseleys do get into the blood and I am the third generation of my family to own one: my grandfather began his Wolseley motoring around 90 years ago!
In the Wolseley Register I have found help to keep my cars running but, more than this, my wife and I have made many good friends through being active members of the Register. This is not to say that everyone who joins the Register wants to become involved socially; many people don’t, but these Members can both give and receive great satisfaction from the interchange of ideas and help in restoration and maintenance of our favourite thoroughbreds, be it by phone, internet or face to face.
Members receive an excellent magazine, Wolseley World, six times each year. We also have a team of Technical Advisors who know their own model group well and are happy to help any fellow Member who has a problem. In addition we have an extensive library of handbooks, manuals and parts lists.
If you are not already a member, do, please, consider joining the Wolseley Register
With very best wishes,
Chairman, Wolseley Register
