  1. ' Have been an MG guy for 34 years here in the US. Favorite among my cars is my '57 MG ZB Magnette Varitone four-door saloon. Just ran across pictures of a '62 Cresta PA. It is beautiful beyond words. I want one but will probably never find one here in the colonies or in Canada. If anyone knows of such a car for sale in North America, please do let me know.

    Thank!

  98. In NZ crestas were marketed as veloxes untill the PB model
    when used for competion some PCs were bored to 3.6 using chev pistons possibly with earlier solid flywheels as the 3 piece fly was not positive
    My PC I changed to a Victor 4sp g/box as I felt 1st was too high when pulling a caravan
    they were used by the transport dept and considered quite fast
    they seemed to eat spark plugs nad 5000 miles was max had to sell mine before getting to fit a pointless ignition so never found out if that fixed it

  134. Hi Stirl
    Is VUG a maroon car? The '55 model year E series cars still had the pull up windows and smaller rear screens of the earlier cross-bow grille models. The major changes for '55 were the revised grille and front panel, flater bonnet, revised bumpers and external chrome trim, revised interior, and wheel spats on the 'sixes'. The '56 models featured wind-up windows, wider front and rear screens, and a slightly more 'toothy' grille. In 1957, the grille was again updated along with external trim, and some 'sixes' had the revised engine of the PA series. If you look on Facebook you will find a forum of active E series owners, and may find a bumper! brst regards, Richard

  136. Hi All,
    I am now the owner of VUG261 1955 Velox, the car has been stored since 1969 and has been owend by the same family in Yorkshire from new. It is in a sorry state with badly rusted sills and front chassis but I am determined to get her back on the road.One question I have is why does this car still have pull down windows and small back window but has the later wide grill is this normal as all the wide grill models I have seen have wind up windows.
    Also the only major part missing is the rear bumper if anyone has one in any condition no matter how bad i would be interested, in need of a brake master cylinder too.

Dave Hubbard has found me some of the missing parts but I still need many more items. I will be at Billing next weekend so if any of you out there can help with any exterior trim - or if any of you have been offered any from nr Oxford I would grateful for your help.

  170. My wife and I have today bought a PB Cresta from Lenham Motors in Kent. This car has been with them for sale for a very long time, which worries me a little as I suspect it is a car that is well known to the club and seems to have been ignored.

    It is lefthand drive, originally white and restored in a way that will not sit well with the purists. It is reported as being the 1963 Italian motor show car. The roof has remained white but the body is cerise.

    My wife and I have always had a soft spot for Vauxhalls, starting with my grandfathers 1957 (circa) Wyvern. This car was dark silver with a cream roof and I could be wrong but I think he said this too was a motor show car. He owned it upto around 1963 and moved onto an HA Viva followed by an HB. The HB was his last Vauxhall.

    My wife and I bought a 1963 PB Cresta in 1979 (appx) being a one owner 35k car. The interior was immaculate, mechanics superb but body poor. I paid £150 for it, ran it for 18 months and sold it for £125 having spent £15 on brakes in that time. It was two tone pale green and the reg was I think 2067 AP. Is it known to anyone? We have fond memories of her. I went out looking to buy a car, any car and came back with the Cresta. My wife did not ask what it was, only wanting to know "what colour is it?"

    In the early eighties we bought a dark metallic green auto Viscount, again one owner and with I seem to recall about 70,000 on the clock. The fuel consumption was around 11 mpg and it suffered leaking front windscreen problems even though I had it refitted professionally.

    Just for the record we later bought a mid blue HA Viva, also one owner and 18,000 miles.

    Our last Vauxhall was a metallic black1989 3.0i Senator and there was also a metallic pale green previous generation 3.0 Opel saloon at the same time.

    We have not owned another Vauxhall since 1992.

    A couple of years back we looked at a 3.3 Cresta PB but I was disappointed because I had unreasonably expected it to be as nice inside as my PB but it was all rather tired to say the least but I suspect sound.

    Anyway PA's we have always liked but are too expensive and PC's are in our eyes not as attractive hence our interest in this PB. Nostalgically it was also the car in which our family (at that time just our two youngest children) were carried on many happy outings. Our oldest child and only daughter aged two was sick on the back seat coming back from visiting my parents. Happy memories.

    It is missing it's dashboard badge (I think that is what is no longer there?). Any suggestions?

    If anyone has some knowledge of our new PB, we would be very grateful to hear from you.

    Membership of the club will be taken up shortly.

  171. Hi,
    Does anyone have, for a 1966(ish) Cresta PB
    1. Front grill
    2. Offside headlamp chrome surround.
    3. Chrome strip for front edge of bonnet.
    This is for the Queensland PB shown in the Gallery page of the website. It will have to be shipped to Australia but shouldn't be too hard as I already get quite a few parts from ebay UK.
    Really hope someone can help me update this 1965 Aussie PB to the 1965 UK look.
    Thanks,

  172. Hi all! I've got a 69 Viscount and i got starter motor problems! I went to start it last week and all it was doing was clicking. I've just had the battery, earth strap and solenoid replaced so they're all good. Took the old starter in for an exchange and got a replacement. Put it on tonight and nothing! The motor factors that i used assured me they were the same units but they look completely different. The new one is about an inch shorter than the old one. Should i get the old one reconditioned?

    Posted on

  194. Just re-joined the club. I used to live in Orlando (Yes Al, you're a bit late but there WERE PA's in Florida!) but am back in Northern New Jersey.

    Re-Restoring my Royal Blue 1960 Velox and also have a '62. Both are LHD cars and are quite rare, to my knowledge there's only 4 people in the US who are/were into PAs, myself, a Gentleman in Texas with 2, Mike Frankovich in California had a RHD 2.6 Cresta and a Friary(!!!) but he has since passed away. I also have heard of a White 2.6 in New York that I'd love to hear more about.

    I'd love to hear of any other PAs in America, there's a few up in Canada where they were originally sold new but GM didn't see fit to sell the PA in America.

    I know of no PBs or PCs in America, I did hear of an E Series in Illinois a few years back and I know that there's a few also up in Canada.

    So to answer Al's question.. there's at least 5, and maybe as many as 8-10 PAs in America, probably less than 20 on the road in Canada and a few more in rough shape. There's also LHD PAs in Scandinavia, but, obviously, they're quite rare but a few do exist there. (Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway) and there's also a gorgeous 3-window Cresta in Switzerland that I have seen pics of online. There's probably more hiding out there but not many.

  195. Nice to see a club for these particular cars, I recently aquires a diamond in the rough 1960 Velox Model P. I am the third owner of the car and want to restore it. for some strang reason every old car in this country seems to have broken or missing tail lights and assemblies.I plan to restore this car over the next few years( I`m currently doing my 1962 Victor Estate) and am looking to find and store the parts I need, any help will be greatly appreciated.

  197. I wonder if my late father's PB Cresta has survived.
    1965 (C registration) in two tone blue (light blue roof, main body darker blue). Manual gearbox. The car was sold on early 1970's at which time it was still in good condition. Registered keeper location would have been north west London.

  198. Hi. Until not so long ago I owned UKD 167 black Vauxhall Velox 1956. I recently saw it for sale near Sheffield but it has since been sold. I wonder if anyone on here was the purchaser?

  199. Hi yes PC Cresta 1970 3.3, now with a 4 speed victor gearbox, it's now painted white with the original red interior, Ive had the pleasure of owning this car since 1989. still a few of these cars driving around in NewZealand. May they last a while longer...

  200. Back in the summer I was at a show & was speaking to the owner of a lovely 1957 Green & White E series. I told him of the identical one that a neighbour had back in the 60's which had been one of the Vauxhall press cars, registered RTM 775. It was owned from about 1961 to 1964 by a Mr Bill Hines of 110 Beaumont Drive Northfleet Kent. The owner I was speaking to was most interested to hear of this as apparently there has been debate in the club as to whether the RTM cars ever existed. I've seen a picture of RTM 775 but its a Wyvern, so Vauxhall must have photographed the cars before actually registering it. Thought this may be of interest. Regards Pete Foster

  201. Hello there - I'm hoping that someone may be able to help?
    My Dad owned a green Vauxhall Velox reg no 8833F from new in 1956 until the mid 60s. By chance I did an internet search on the Reg number and it looks like it may still be around. It would be great to get some news of it.
    Many Thanks

  205. I very much enjoyed your site.I used to own a 1965 Cresta pb power glide.It went like stink away from traffic lights but ran out of breath at about 90mph, reckless days but fun.The car was once owned by Frankie Howard.

  206. Nice site - Interested to see that these old stalwarts are being kept going in pretty good shape - I used my 1966 Cresta PC as the 'practice car' for the 1972 East African Safari Rally - it quickly became known as the fastest grader (road scraper in E.A !)

    I have some pics if anyone is interested?

    Best wishes - KM

  207. I am feeling a bit desperate and thought I would contact you to see if you or you might know someone that could help.

    I have recently had my original Vauxhall Victor FB radio stolen from my car and would desperately like to get it replaced.

    Same radio as fitted to the PB Cresta.

    If you can help it would be great if you could contact me on: pwood13660@blueyonder.co.uk.

    Thanks for reading, Paul

Do you have any exceptions to cars updated with newer runnig gear. or altered and updated interriors.. I love the style of the car but have come from custom/hot rod background. love to hear opinions from other owners.

  213. Hello all, great to see the marque alive, being a past owner of a 1962 Velox which I, in my younger days converted to a Cresta by fitting everything except the individual front seats. She was black/grey. Only three years old and needed front wings.I now own a Triumph TR4 and have restored many a classic However not the reason I am here. Although not employed as, I am a time served Coach Trimmer and been doing the odd job for anyone. I have a rear seat back from a, I believe a PC or PB with armrest. The person now no longer wants it, The cover is off and I was about to fit a top panel in black leather. The seat is dark green and was to be stained. I hate to lose the past by dumping it. Anyone want it? e-mail me.

  216. Can anyone help please? I would like to be able to fit a child's car seat in my 1962 PA. The child's seat has Isofix attachments (I use it in our modern car) and I wonder if any club members have experience of putting Isofix fittings rather than seatbelts in the back of a PA.
    I'd be grateful for any advice please.
    If Isofix is not an option I suppose we'll have to look at seatbelts.

  221. Hi guys

    Just dropped in here because I had a PA Cresta (TT Blue) waaaay back in the early 70s.
    Thing is I recall there were PABXs and PABYs (mine the former). I see no mention of these codes on t'internet. Am I imagining this?
    BTW I paid 15GBP for it and it ended at a scrappers unfortunately, but I do still use its rear-view mirror when underneath my Omega B!

  224. Good to see my old PA XDL474 on the site pictures at Billing 09. I owned the car from 87-circa 94. It came from the isle of Wite originally, I bought it from a Ted in Stoke and it lived with me in the West Midlands before going South to Statford. Bought for a few hundred pounds and sold for the same. I ran it as my everyday car although it looks much better than when i had it. Too young and too skint to appreciate it, I managed to scrape it from one MOT to the next but eventually had to let it go. I had lived the dream and loved it.
    Best regards Phil
