WOLSELEY 25 DROPHEAD COUPÉ

Drophead coupé.

For £498, you got a car capable of 90mph, offering 'MG performance without the scary MG image'. It came with P100 headlamps, twin trumpet horns and the 'nightpass' system, as found on the bigger MGs - this was where the dip switch energized a pass lamp, which was fine until the bumper dropped off! This fine car same on a 104½ins wheelbase frame and is now very rare.
