That is a very early built Mk2 Wolseley 1100/1300 I can spot :D

Good to see one in use at this time of year. Took advantage of the the mild dry weather yesterday and took mine out for a spin.

Nice weather over here as well Robin, good to get them out. Kevin, having repeater lights indicates this is a Mk2 but look at the rear quarter light surround. It has the corner fillet of the Mk1. It could be a Mk1 with repeater lights fitted?

Yeah... looks like it... it's F reg so maybe enhanced!!

Not really on topic but what are realistic values for good models these days... previously I mentioned my neighbour bought a B reg Princess for £3k with spares this Summer... what could it ever be worth top end??? I'm being strangely drawn myself :)

Really nice Vanden Plas, Riley, Wolseley and MG models are getting close to £10k. Look at the attachment, nearly £13k :D

This just confuses matters for me. Insurance renewal is coming up and I need to define the value of the Wolseley for the agreed valuation. I wouldn't put mine anywhere near these values, more like 3-4k on a good day and it's a very original low mileage car.
