 1967 Vauxhall Victor 101 FC

Reg. no. KKJ 456E
Chassis no. FCE7155113
Engine no. 183488
The Victor FC appeared on the scene in 1964 just three years after its predecessor. Although it looked significantly different from the FB, under the skin little had really changed, prompting Vauxhall to market it as the Victor 101 to stress that it had ‘101 improvements’ over the FB. Still powered by the familiar 76bhp 1,594cc unit seen before, it was still suspended by wishbones and coil springs at the front along with a live axle and semi-elliptic springs at the rear.
The new styling was much sleeker though, with thinner pillars, more curvaceous panels and a slightly concave rear window – a trend which didn\'t catch on but was more successfully adopted by Citroen with the CX and C6 models. The bold new styling also offered another significant upside – the Victor 101 offered one of the largest boots in its class, more interior space and class-leading ride quality. This very smart example was fully restored in 2018 to a high standard. It has a recorded 49,045 miles and we are told that the car drives \'nicely\'. The most recent MOT expired in May and the car is offered here with a V5c.

Estimates: £5,000 - £6,000
