1934 Wolseley Hornet Eustace Watkins Special
Of the numerous styles of coachwork that were available on the Wolseley Hornet Special chassis, without a doubt, one of the most attractive was the purposeful ‘Daytona Special’ 2-seater, offered by Eustace Watkins, the London Main Agent for Wolseley cars. 
At £275 this represented very good value for a 6-cylinder 2 seater sports car with excellent performance allied to good fuel economy.
This 1934 example spent over 50 years in storage in Canada before returning to the UK in 2005.
It subsequently underwent an extensive restoration which has included a reconstruction of the body framework and replacement of many panels. 
The chassis and running gear were overhauled including replacement of kingpins and all steering gear and the braking system was fully refurbished.
The engine, gearbox and rear axle were then overhauled.
All brightwork was re-played, the original instruments restored and the car was fully re-trimmed.
Great attention to detail is clearly evident and this motor car presents in fine order throughout.
