Sellers original description:
1960 F Model Vauxhall Victor Saloon.
I am selling this car on behalf of my stepfather, whose family have owned “Victoria” for the last 50 years!
Extras include matching notek blue spot lamps, wheel trims, ammeter & cigarette lighter.
Less than 50,000 miles since new. (Exact mileage 49,900)
1 family owned since 1962 with current owner since 1992.
Recent new battery, clutch slave & master cylinder.
MOT till Nov 2011, Tax-exempt.
This is an extremely reluctant sale, as mention the car has been with us for 50 years and is very much a part of the family, having been my mother’s bridal car at their wedding and regularly attending the Bromley classic car show.
But my father is now in his 70’s and feels he no longer has the time or energy to give Victoria the love & care she deserves, so it’s time to bid her farewell to someone who hopefully can ?
The car has absolutely loads of documentation & history, dating back since new. Even the original sales receipt and almost everything since!
She is pretty much completely original, but please remember she is 50 years old and does have a few nicks & marks here & there plus the odd scratch. But again this is the ORIGINAL paintwork, so these are to be expected.
The car has always been garaged and has not seen a drop of rain since being in my stepfather’s possession.
Mechanically, Even after being sat in the garage since 2005, after a new battery & oil change she fired straight up and runs smooth and quiet! The same can be said for the gearbox and ride.
She drives lovely with no unusual noise from the gearbox etc and gear changes are smooth and easy.
As mentioned, this Vauxhall Victor is 50 years old, so I urge anyone interested to come and have a look and inspect the car for yourselves.
