Vauxhall Victor Overview
The Vauxhall Victor is classed as a large family car which was produced by the British automobile manufacturing company Vauxhall Motors. This vehicle was in production from 1957 to 1978 and is now considered a classic car. The Victor replaced the Wyvern and was produced over 5 generations, which changed the look and size of the car drastically over its lifetime. This car was to become the most exported car produced in the UK. They were well built, spacious and comfortable cars. They were popular but are no longer seen on the roads of the UK, except in very rare cases.
Vauxhall Victor History
The first generation F-Series (1957-61) had a real American styling influence, which Vauxhall had adopted at this time. They were prone to severe rust, in fact more than any car produced to date.
The second generation FB series (1961-64) dealt with this rust issue and also gave the vehicle a new look, with smoother front end and was fitted with a larger engine than its predecessor.
The third generation FC series (1964-67) again had a new look and was considered very spacious.
The fourth generation FD series (1967-72) had larger engines and was to take the Victor in a new direction. It had a new interior design, but was the lowest selling Victor model to date.
The fifth generation FE series (1972-78) was given the name 'new Victor' as it was much larger than previous versions and gave the passengers much more room in the cabin. The Victor name was dropped in 1978 and replaced with the Victor VX.
The Vauxhall Victor was available in 1.5, 1.6, 1.8, 2.0, 2.3 and 3.3L petrol engines, depending on which version. The smaller engines were the more economical, offering up to 25mpg. Which engine did you have and how did it perform economically?
