1955 Vauxhall Velox Sedan

Transmission : Manual

Mileage :  84881miles

Colour : Blue

 

In 1955 in the United Kingdom if you were looking for a large family vehicle, you would have had the options of a Ford Zephyr, A110 Austin Westminster, or our Vauxhall Velox.
The Velox was first introduced in 1948, the production of this vehicle grew and changed shape until the end of the run in 1965.

Looking into our Velox she is a sweet old lady with time showing some of her age,
painted in a two-tone colour scheme with the bottom grey and the top black she looks smart and elegant amongst her peers of other vehicles.

Apon opening the driver’s door and slipping into the bench like seat it feels more like at couch than the driver’s seat. Checking that you are in neutral, turn the key and the little straight 6 cylinder comes to life, select 1st gear which is down to the left as she only has 3 forward gears, let the clutch out and the little torquey engine pulls strongly as you slip in to second gear. As you gain speed changing to 3rd gear, she will pull you up most hills and is a happy cruiser on the country roads.

To the back seat where your kids or adult passenger can be seated there is plenty of space, the Aircon is provided by pulling the windows down or up with the tab on the glass, no… it doesn’t have window winders, that only come in later models. And then there is the boot, space for at least two large suitcases.

Well that seems to sum up our little big family sedan, that is looking to tour again with a new family.

For more information, please drop us a line or come by for a short cruise
