Top of the range Wolseley in 1937 was the Super Six 25, a powerful and smooth six-cylinder engined car, displacing 3,485cc and rated at 25.01hp. The four-speed gearbox had synchromesh on second, third and top gears from October 1937, twin SU carburettors fuelled the powerful engine while semi-elliptic suspension and Luvax hydraulic shock absorbers provided superlative ride comfort. The Wolseley was indeed a high quality car with such features as Jackall permanent jacks, rear seat foot rests and picnic tables being standard features in their top of the range models. The most attractive two-door drophead coupé version, with its wind-up side windows and snug hood, twin auxiliary driving lamps and external trumpet horns, had the overall appearance and style of many significantly more expensive contemporaries.
