6/99 or 6/110. If you can spot the difference at this distance I suggest that you give the carrots a rest.

Just had a shot of concentrated carrot juice, but didn't lead to any revelations. Single colour liveries usually fairly late during 6/99 to 6/110 sequence, so tending towards 6/110 Mk2. Small 60s Wolseleys were built locally, but nothing found about big ones; 6/110 assembly started in NZ in 1964, so not impossible that with CKD despatch from UK up and runing, they might have given it a go in ZA as well. But all hypothetical conjecture with no evidence.

6/99 - 13,108 built.
6/110 MkI - 10,800 built.
6/110 MkII - 13,301 built. All figures for Cowley.

As this is a 2016 movie, suggest that we go for the newest model.

Interesting to know that the carrot myth reached Québec as well. Cat's Eyes Cunningham for ever!

a TV show here replaced the carrot by a curtain-less neighbor but it is another story... ;)

Wasn't there a change of wheel size in some models?

Mk II had 13" wheels with 7.50 tyres, earlier cars had 7.00 x 14 but you would need eyes like a latrine rodent to tell.

6/110 MkII.

New glasses purchased last month, cost more than a new Mini in 1959.

£497. Do they have superpowers??

I said that they were more than that. I insist on a high specification of rimless glasses with lenses of a non standard shape, and there was a pair of prescription bifocal sunglasses included. Photochromic lenses are useless in the car, and I can't use varifocals either.

I think some Austin Westminsters and Wolseley 6/110s were built in Rhodesia, which might have supplied ZA. This account suggests some background.

New info from South African book that "Big Farinas" (Austin A99/A110, Wolseley 6/99 and 6/110, a few VdP 3 Litre - and even some 4-Litre R) were built in ZA 1959-68. Previous suggestions that ZA Big Farinas were imported Rhodesia builds now superseded.
