In 1961 BMC added two small "luxury" models to its impressive Mini range, the Riley Elf and Wolseley Hornet.

The Elf and Hornet both shared a distinctive, "long-tailed" body shell which had special front panels to accommodate the two marques traditional, up-right grilles. The longer tail incorporated extended rear wings (with upright tail lamps and "fins") which provided a much larger boot area with a top hinged boot lid.

MkI Hornets were powered by the standard Mini 848cc A-Series engine which seemed slightly underpowered towards the end of the models life. Hornets were well equipped, the interior featuring extra sound proofing, quality seat coverings and Cooper instruments mounted in a walnut centre panel.

A 1963 Wolseley Hornet (shitty green with cream top 255 RTO - no 'A' reg suffix) my first car at the age of 17, although it had no synchomesh and I had to double-de-clutch even UPHILL to change gear, I loved that old beauty. I wonder if it is in the heaven for cars. I bet a lot of my old girlfriends remember it fondle-ly.
Ha, ha.
