I have a Wolseley 1800 S Landcrab 1969 and is in the process of being resprayed and will be back on the road for the season next year. Not to be mistaken for the Austin 3 ltr - Landlobster
For those of you who do not recognise it it is a large mini with 4 doors and a boot. FWD with the highest spec 'B' series engine from BMC as standard (large valves & twin HS6s). Rear leg room is 1" more than a RR of the same period.
It was replaced by the 1800/2200 wedge.

Also in the stable I have a Woseley 16/60 1962 (predicessor to the Landcrab, a 1957 Matchless G3LS (350 single) and a 1966 ErcaWolfe trailor tent.

My final claim to fame is that I am the webmaster for the British MadeCar Club (https://britishmadecarclub.co.uk)

I actually drove the Wolseley version of the Landcrab and I loved the car! Much nicer than the wedge that followed. You are a lucky man indeed, welcome to the forum.

Be sure to stop by the British Motorcycles section and introduce yourself and your Matchless........
