Rare, original left-hand drive Vauxhall Velox from 1950. Built by General Motors in Antwerp.
This Velox comes directly from the first owner! The Velox has only driven 98,000 km in all these years and was never restored. The owner had a habit of never selling his cars but storing them in a company hall. That's where the Vauxhall stood until last year. After all these years, the Velox drives again. The 6-cylinder in-line engine runs like a charm again, of course with new oil, points, etc. Brakes redone with a new main brake cylinder and cleaning all the brakes on the wheels. The Velox even has the original diagonal tyres!
The interior has a beautiful patina. The red leather is still supple and the seats are not worn out. The headliner is neat, as are the door cards. All gauges work as well as the fold-out indicators.
The body was kept up to date over the years. The mudguards were resprayed in the past. The rest of the bodywork still has original paint. The bottom, sills, etc, are really hard. One inspection window is missing under the car on the right and there are two small rust holes on the mudguards.
In addition to Belgian papers, the Vauxhall has the original delivery agreement, the original instructions and the original sales brochure. There’s also an overview from the Vauxhall club. All kept by the owner who is now in his 90s and still very proud! And rightly so, because you don't often come across such a neat, honest and original Vauxhall.
