The Vauxhall Cresta was produced from 1954 to 1972. The Cresta E
version. launched in 1954. had the same 2262 cc six cylinder
engine as its predecessor the Velox in having a choice of leather
or fabric upholstery. optional two tone paintwork. a heater as
standard. a small electric fascia mounted clock. a cigar lighter. a
lamp automatically illuminating the boot when opened and a vanity
mirror on the inside of the front passenger's sun visor along with
a special ornamental badge above the V (for Vauxhall) badge on the
nose of the car. A radio was optional. In October 1955 a facelift
model with deeper front and rear screens was introduced. The
balanced drop windows were replaced by ones with winding
mechanisms. there were interior trim improvements. separate amber
rear flasher lights and windscreen washers became standard. A new
chrome plated grille with fewer vertical slats replaced the earlier
diecast version. A Cresta tested by the magazine The Motor in 1956
had a top speed of 82. 2 mph and could accelerate from
0-60 mph in 20. 2 seconds

This early Cresta is in delightful condition and is largely
original with a recorded mileage of 60. 00 miles. The paintwork is
in great order as is the ample chrome work and interior. With no
signs of any corrosion. the six-cylinder engine runs very well with
no adverse rattles or noises and the car is described as driving
with no known faults. Supplied with a V5C registration document and
a comprehensive history folder; once a common sight on British
roads. it is now unusual to see these Vauxhalls and even rarer in
this condition.
