Those living outside the UK probably won't be able to access this but he BBC tribute to Peter Sallis, includes a clip from Last of the Summer Wine which features an end of life moment for a landcrab. I think it could be a 2200 but you see the front of the car so briefly that it is hard to tell. The car is right at the end of this clip.
This Wolseley Six has just been added to eBay Here with a starting bid of a very reasonable £1250 and a buy-it-now of an also very reasonable £1750. The baggy cloth seats have been replaced by vinyl items from most likely an 18/85, it is a manual car with no PAS. The MOT is due now but this is definitely worth a look. Someone of this parish is after a 2200 - go and have a look at this one.
Chris, Top marks for the dedication for keeping the little thing on the road, you must be the pioneer of Matiz restoration. I thought Shiply was a local spelling mistake until I looked it up on Google..........
Welcome to the forum. Interesting set of vehicle have and have owned. I tip my hat to anyone who has owned a Lancia Beta, mega rare in saloon car form these days. Hope you get a 2200 soon. Most likely be a Wolseley as the A&M versions now rare unless you fancy a trip to Denmark.
Heard about this a few days ago, major problem for a lot of forum posts, particularly the picture heavy users guides that Chris has put a lot of work into. Transferring to another host and then having to re create links to existing posts will take huge amounts of effort and time and it would be understandable if this didn't happen for a long time, or at all. I've always found photobucket slow to use and prone to failure. I won't miss it, I am sure a lot of other customers will feel the same and so will some of their advertisers.
Early cars had the narrow strip of veneer which isn't real wood along with a diamond stitch effect door trim, and door bins. The 18/85 Mk11 from 1969 onwards got the more substantial looking wood veneer trim and plain door cards, with much smaller pockets. So the Austin type cappings are correct for the Mk1. I think in order to fit the later type there should be some brackets or clips on the door to attach them. I am sure some with more knowledge about that will be along soon.
This firm only has one classic car auction per year. In this July's sale there will be this beauty
Details not found on DVLA website so it could have been off the road for a long time. That anodised body trim says its an 18/85'S' which makes it a bit rare and special. This could be a bargain for someone as long as I don't hit the 'Create Post' button on this forum
