1950 WOLSELEY SIX-EIGHTY SALOON

The larger Wolseley model, the Six-Eighty, has a six-cylinder engine with twin carburettors, as against the four cylinders and single carburettor of the Four-Fifty model. Both engines are similar in design, permitting standardisation of their essentials and thus promoting production.

The interior appointments are in the best modern style and include a heater, fitted under the forward parcel shelf and controlled by a rheostat on the instrument panel. De-misting air ducts are built in below the windscreen and are connected to the heater. Provision is made for a radio receiver, which can be fitted as an optional extra.

Both the Six-Eighty and Four-Fifty models are worthy successors in the Wolseley tradition and their slim elegance, combined with sound engineering qualities, give them a distinct air of superiority in their class.
