1956 Vaux­hall Cresta E

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Vaux­hall’s ri­val to Ford’s MkI Con­sul/Ze­phyr/Zo­diac also adopted State­side looks, in this case its de­sign ap­ing that of late-’40s Chevro­lets. Barons’ left-hand drive 51,000km (31,000 miles) ex­am­ple has an in­ter­est­ing past, hav­ing been stored for 25 years and prior to that, used by the Bri­tish em­bassy in Paris. Pleas­ingly (and un­usu­ally) never welded, it comes with a fresh MoT test and is said to be run­ning well, but the paint has sur­face rust and the front bumper needs fit­ting.
