Not an 1100... but a Wolseley 1300!

This is the first car I've spoken to the owner (an elderly woman) about. According to her, it has not moved in 'about twenty years' and 'is not in running order' - I could see that! I think she thought I wanted to buy it...

Anyway, I blew up the photo to read the badge as I didn't know the exact marque as the BMC ADO16 was blatantly badge-engineered under many names, and found out it was a Wolseley 1300!

This is worryingly close to me - right on the city fringe, hence the rural appearance of this photo - and I wasn't aware of it until recently. I really am surprised with the amount of old cars in my area, some of which I weren't even aware of...
