Description

One of the seven Vauxhall’s from the Derbyshire collection an extremely rare and very well cherished 1978 Vauxhall Victor that has remained in the family that was passed down from father to son. With having just covered only 33,533 from new. The car was garaged all its life and still contains its original paintwork from new with a deep all over shine and no corrosion whatsoever. The velour interior is as crisp as the day it was new with no signs of wear to the front seats or rare seats the headlining is super clean. The underside as you can see in the photos is rock solid with no signs of corrosion. to find a vx 2.3 in this condition is ultra rare with the engine bay spotless. It comes with a massive service history with conformation as a young boy going on holiday with his father with a caravan kept in this collection of seven Vauxhall’s very rarely cars like this don’t come on to the market and a cherish to see a truly a remarkable example.

At the start of 1976 the relatively large 1800 cc Vauxhall Victor came with a recommended sticker price lower than that of the more modern but smaller and relatively well equipped Vauxhall Cavalier GL, which will have encouraged fleet managers to negotiate for higher discounts on the Cavalier and left the basic Victor looking embarrassingly underpriced.To try to move the Victor upmarket, Vauxhall upgraded the trim level of the basic Victor 1800 cc to match that of the 2300 cc version, with improvements that included fabric seat trim, a new clarified instrument display embellished with mock timber surround as well as a new central console. and a seat belt warning light across the range. Under the bonnet / hood various upgrades were made to the 1800 cc engine which now offered 88 bhp (66 kW; 89 PS) of output in place of the 77 bhp (57 kW; 78 PS) previously claimed. The changes carried a weight penalty, but performance was nevertheless usefully improved with top speed up from 89 mph (143 km/h) to 100 mph (161 km/h). To draw attention to the changes Vauxhall also dropped the Victor and VX 4/90 model names and the range was renamed the Vauxhall VX in January 1976. The VX Series is distinguished from the outside by a simplified grille and revised headlights.
