WOLSELEY Hornet

Classic Car
Version
  • Saloon

With the Mini a big success, BMC decided to extend its appeal even further in 1961 with the Wolseley Hornet, sister model to the Riley Elf. This was a far less utilitarian version than the original though. So there was a rather flamboyant chrome-laden front, a larger boot framed by small fins and a three-instrument dashboard surrounded by wood veneer. In 1963, the MkIII Hornet introduced the 998cc A-series engine to the Mini for the first time and Hydrolastic suspension replaced the bouncy rubber cone type. The MkIII (1966) had winding windows and improved ventilation.
