A very nice collection of Wolseley's you have there, and a rare gas engine, if there the correct engine numbers you've posted above the picture the first 2 are WD8's and the last one is a WD9. Dates are (I think these are correct) 1953, 1960 and 1971 with the last WD9's being built in 1972 with an engine number of 90258.

Thanks for sharing with us,

Stu.

the style 1,2,3 and 4 used to have twin flywheels...
the Australian based cub also had twin fly wheels....

the WD took on an entirely new dimension when they brought out the standard 14 1/2inch flywheel and they were substituted for the smaller 12inch flywheels.the wd2 was a high speed 3hp at 1250rpm,they also made a batch of 30 petrol/paraffin in July 1948..
the lb series also had twin flywheels as well...
Luke coates (Jamie coates son) he used to have over 10 wolseleys back a time ago..
not sure if he still has that many now....

hope this helps...mike...
