This extremely rare Vauxhall VX4/90, is one of the few that are left on the road today. In good condition for its age, this FB VX4/90 provides a perfect starter classic. Exempt from both MOT and tax, it is a brilliant car to take on the road, that will attract plenty of attention. DVLA records state that there are only a handful of VX4/ 90s left.

This is the 1963 FB Series Vauxhall VX4/90 with the twin carb 1508cc engine and manual gearbox. It also features the distinct sporty coloured stripes along its sides and large light clusters at its rear.
Although the cars bodywork and mechanics have been overhauled, there are no invoices to confirm precisely when the work was carried out, but there is a photographic record of the work done.
The VX4/90 delivers great value for money, which is hard to beat.
It has a new stainless steel exhaust system. The clock shows 51047 miles although this is not warranted.

This 1963 VX4/90 has a twin carb 1508cc engine and manual gearbox. It is in good condition for its age, drives well and handles as it should.

Exterior: The VX4/90s bodywork and mechanical components have been overhauled. The underside of the car, matches the body colour and is not covered by suspicious, thick black underseal.

There is a book of photographs of the restoration work, with the date stamp of September 2017. The paintwork would benefit from a repaint at some point, but the car remains very presentable.

Interior: Inside, the Vauxhall VX4/90 is finished in red throughout.
The dash has the full compliment of instruments not fitted to the normal Victor FB.

Whilst the car is tidy, it is not perfect, but wont look out of place at classic car events or rallies.

I showed it recently at the Powderham Classic Car Show in Devon and it attracted a lot of interest. It was the only VX4/90 among hundreds of classic cars

Below is some history of the FB VX4/90 I downloaded.

The Vauxhall VX was a popular robust and spacious family car. Originally named the Vauxhall Victor when it was first released in 1957, the VX remained in production until 1978. For a time, its popularity made it Britains most exported car. It could be found all over the world, from Canada to Sri Lanka.
The FB series debuted in 1960, with a fresh, upgraded stylish design. The FB had a flat front and a turtle-deck rear. Inside, there was now the option to upgrade to a 4-speed all-synchromesh transmission with floor change. In addition, the engine had a higher compression ratio and revised manifolding, which increased the power output to 49.5 bhp.
In 1963 the engine was expanded from 1508 to 1594 cc. Cars with the larger engine also featured a block-style grille and updated parking lights. Further features included a heater, fog lamps, a radio, screen washers and seat belts.

The VX4/90 was the FBs sports version. It featured a twin carburettor, alloy head, high-compression, a nitrided crankshaft engine giving 71 bhp and servo-assisted disc brakes on the front wheels.

The VX4/ 90 is easily identifiable by its coloured strip along its side, as well as an updated grille and bigger tail-light clusters.
Only sold as a saloon, it had a 4-speed, all-synchro gearbox, lockheed front disc brakes, 14 inch wheels, individual bucket seats, full instrumentation and an engine upgraded to 1595cc, which could surpass 90 mph.
