Re: 1957 Wolseley 6/90 Restoration Journey

Great to see the fully finished car! Looks stunning!

The amount of work that has gone into it seems painful and equally rewarding. Kudos to you for carrying out the restoration meticulously!

Re: 1957 Wolseley 6/90 Restoration Journey

The Wolsley Picked up 2 category prizes on its maiden outing at the Delhi Statesman over the weekend .

- Best Restored post war category (Outside USA manufactured )
- Best performance on the road course - Post war category ( credit to me for overtaking everything in sight using the power of the mighty 3 litre straight 6 twin carb ! )

Drove it for over 250kms over the course of the Scrutiny / Event and it did not miss a beat .

The car was appreciated by the judges for the excellent quality of the mechanical and cosmetic restoration.

Appreciation for bhpian - Indrojit Sircar for resurrecting the car .Overall a great day for him as all 6 of his cars / entries won awards .

Listing below-

Owned and restored by him

30 Merc Stuttgart
46 Fleetmaster
57 Wolsley
56 Studebaker President

Restored by him

46 MGTC
Classic Land Rover

The Delhi Statesman Rally was an amazing experience compared to what happened in Kolkata Statesman rally and the politics.. Anyway late night drives in Delhi winters are always fun.

I was there for the rally this weekend. My son and me had a ball of a time there. Congratulations! Never knew this was the car in the thread. Would've loved to have learned more. Hats off to you

The privilege would be entirely mine. Will connect over a PM for a visit on one of the Sundays if that's fine with you.
