Vauxhall Viscount

ER Classics Desktop 2022

With a bit of luck you can still remember the Vauxhall Viscount? The model experienced 1966 in June. The Viscount shared the mechanical components of the Cresta PC, among other things, but was even more luxurious. The buyer was able to assure himself of power steering, electric windows, seats with adjustable backs, a kind of 'walnut' wooden dashboard, roll-up safety belts - pay attention before and after! , heated rear window and 'vinyl' roof coverings. All things that are fitted as standard in the most debilitating car. The Viscount was only available in burgundy, dark green or dark blue; had wider tires than the Cresta, chrome around the rear lights and a partially matte black grille. At the 3,3 liter six-seater was an automatic 'Powerglide' two-speed gearbox from General Motors. At extra cost a four-speed automatic transmission was available or could be (...) gone for a manual four-speed transmission. At the end of 1970 the two-speed gearbox was canceled and it became a three-speed automatic. As you know, Vauxhall was already part of the General Motors Group at that time. Did you know that this model was available in South Africa with a V8 engine from archrival Chrysler? Odd.
