The overall style and layout of the Wolseley 1500 was not altered from the Mk I, the most notable development was the more modern look achieved by the boot and bonnet hinges now being concealed under the the skin. The side chrome trim was also remodelled, losing the circled ‘W’ and now extending to the front of the car before returning to the wheel arch.
The front suspension was lowered to reduce ‘roll’ and the interior gained a full width parcel shelf. Both ‘Fleet’ and ‘Family’ models continued.
The Wolseley Mk II was short lived, after only a year and a half’s life it was replaced with another slightly improved version, the Wolseley 1500 Mk III.
