1961 Vauxhall Velox PA 2651cc. Grecian White with red and grey upholstery. This stunning Vauxhall is a very late model Velox registered in late 1961. The October 1960 facelift for 1961 was marked with modifications to the trim, new rear lights with modified tail fins (no longer with indicators built in), combined front park/indicator lamps and a new dashboard with the two round dials replaced by a rectangular cluster with “magic ribbon” speedometer, the strip indicating speed changed from green to amber at 30 mph and to red at 60 mph. There was also a new engine, still of six cylinders, but now increased in capacity to 2651 cc, and delivering 95 bhp (71 kW). The UK had recently embarked on its first programme of motorway building, and the Velox now boasted a straight line maximum speed of 94 mph (151 km/h). This particular car spent the first 47 years of its life in South Africa so is a very solid shell with no rust or rot whatsoever. Mechanically the Velox is very strong with the six cylinder engine starting on the button and driving without fault. We think this could possibly be one of the best available today.
