The Burgandy Wolseley WD 8

Post by Avandriver on Thu Oct 29 2009, 01:50

This was bought for me by my late wife in 2008 in a very poor state









It was partially siezed and in need of new valves It was previously in a fire and unloved .

But after a lot of work and some say a strange choice of colour ( Christines choice ) it has got a new life



There are not many reverse rotation WD8's on the rally scene but this one will go on forever



It is on a four wheel trolley now and has travelled with me to quite a few rally's
