Vauxhall 1946-1970 market review

Vauxhall was once a strong classic market contender but they haven’t sold here for more than 50 years and interest in the brand is declining.

Pick of the 1950s-60s cars is still the PA model with lots of chrome and wrap-around windows front and rear.

PA Crestas can get above $15,000. Earlier E Series sedans are becoming difficult to find yet they still aren’t expensive. The same applies to PB Velox/Crestas that offer a very cheap alternative to EJ/EH Holdens.

Sedans from the 1940s are vintage in style and character and relatively expensive. Vivas from the 1960s make a good first classic at under $5000.

Sedans 1946-51 $11,000 [5]

Wyvern/Velox 1952-57 $6835 [3]

Velox/Cresta 1959-62 $10,750 [4]

Velox/Cresta 1963-65 $4000 [1]
