And now for something completely different MotoeXotica Classic Cars is proud to present this 103 years old 1914 Wolseley Stellite, a British survivor that was virtually unknown in North America and this example is complete with an original rumble seat
This example is finished in yellow livery with black wings and yellow artillerystyle wooden wheels. Its paint and trim are in overall very good order, while its brass radiator, horn and Discus patent folding windscreen are in good condition. There are paint blemishes on the passenger side of the hood and at the body/trunk shut line. The cars lights, including its Veena brass acetylene headlights, cowl lights and ballshaped taillamps, look good. In addition, all of the cars brass bits show the proper amount of patina. The car rides on quarterelliptic front and rear leaf springs and Commander 4.50 x 19 tires surround the yellow wheels mentioned above.
The Stellites ash and steel bodywork is solid, the black folding softtop is in good overall condition (tear on passenger side is present) and the cars engine bay is tidy. There is a sidemounted spare tire on the drivers (right) side of the car. The only way to get in and out of the car is via the passenger (left) side door. Note that the only way to start this car is via the hand crank at the front; there is no ignition switch or key. This fabulous time piece sat in a prominent museum. It is being sold untested but the engine does turn freely
Under the bonnet is a 1.08L overhead valve Fhead fourcylinder engine with onebarrel carburetor, SV exhaust valves and adjustable tappets.Backing this motor is a twospeed manual transmission mounted on the rear axle.
Inside, the cars twopassenger green leather seat is in fair shape and appears original to the car, as is the black floor mat. There is a Stewart Warner speedometer mounted to the drivers right and a Lucas ammeter mounted in the center dash. The original fourspoke steering wheel looks good, while the mirror glass, handbrake and hand shifter are in decent shape, as are the inner door panels. In the rear is a matching dickey rumble seat that holds and adult or two small children.
This car took part in the Eton Wick Annual Concours dlgance in September 1963 and competed in the 1965 Bean C.C. Daffodil Run from Bracknell to Beaulieu.
The Electric and Ordinance Accessories Co., a division of Vickers Ltd. in the United Kingdom, introduced the Stellite automobile in 1914. Vickers was also a part of Wolseley Motors Ltd., and Wolseley designed the Stellite. They were small, lightweight cars and while popular in the United Kingdom, the Stellite was virtually unknown in the United States. Production discontinued during World War I, making these cars extremely rare today. The relatively high number of surviving pre1914 Wolseleys testifies to the popularity of the marque. A large proportion is overseas.
