Wolseley Hornet 1930-36
The Wolseley Hornet was introduced in 1930, essentially a rebadged Morris Minor, but with its own 6-cylinder engine. The engine was 1271cc overhead cam and 6-cylinders, and it was also used in MG F-type, K-type, L-type and N-type. Hornet Specials were made from 1932-36 with twin carb engines that were enlarged to 1604cc in 1935. Hornets were supplied with factory saloon, open two-seater and coupe bodies, but many cars were sent to coachbuilders for their bodies. The Hornet Special was launched for the 1934 season having an underslung rear axle and chassis bracing. The engine was given a new block, a crossflow head, and an improved syncromesh gearbox. For 1935 the Wolseley Fourteen 1604cc engine was given to the Hornet. The Hornet was killed off in 1936 when Morris decided that his MG badge should carry the sporting aspirations for his cars.
