1957 Wolseley 1500

"Beautifully styled. Realistically priced. Brilliantly engineered.

This new Wolseley Fifteen Hundred.

It is a compact car with high performance. The 1500 c.c. o.h.v. engine provides a high power-to-weight ratio giving 'overdrive performance' on a normal, though high, top gear for long-distance tireless motoring. Speed in third nears that - in top - overtaking is swift and sure.

Brakes are large and powerful. Torsion bar front suspension, allied to good steering geometry gives rock-steady road-holding and cornering. All interior appointments are tastefully styled to tone with the gay, hard-wearing exterior colours. This new Wolseley is built for to-day's motoring conditions, for those who want all the advantages of Wolseley quality and craftsmanship at a favourable price. Prove it for yourself!"
