The Wolseley 18/85 arrived in the Spring of 1967. A MkII version followed in 1969 and was replaced by the Mk.III, now called Wolseley Six, in 1972.

The Six had stylish wheels rims:

Also the bumper overriders were no longer used on the Six.

Not all Wolseley Sixes had "Rostyle-type" wheels but some used normal hubcaps as shown in the brochure.

So it was an optional extra for extra £££s! ;)
Lucky for us they dropped the bumper overriders, else it would be difficult to keep them apart.

Not sure if these are just later owner additions but ....

Reg./year is usually a give-away though ;-)
