Daffodil Run from Bracknell to Beaulieu.The Electric and Ordinance Accessories Co., a division of Vickers Ltd. in the United Kingdom, introduced the Stellite automobile in 1914. Vickers was also a part of Wolseley Motors Ltd., and Wolseley designed the Stellite. They were small, lightweight cars and while popular in the United Kingdom, the Stellite was virtually unknown in the United States. Production discontinued during World War I, making these cars extremely rare today. The relatively high number of surviving pre-1914 Wolseleys testifies to the popularity of the marque. A large proportion is overseas.This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 4,877 miles.
